    I would recommend Peter Church’s book Added Value-the life stories of Indian business leaders. Amazing insight on some truly inspirational people. You should read this book not only because it was fantastically insightful and interesting in relation to the individuals but also gives the reader an incredibly helpful view of the mindset of the business leaders. The book is an excellent primer for anyone seeking to do business.

    Good to see one among the Siva Trilogy in the list esp The Oath of Vayuptras

  10. Mayuresh says:

    The comical saga revolves around a story consisting of three school boys who deviate from studies and indulge in various adventures. The first half of the book portrays negative side or how the kids neglect studies and do stuff they’re not supposed to do. The second half revolves around the girl they’re trying to impress and couple of good deeds they do. The end involves some melodrama and tragedy, which is best read on the book.
    The book is full of humor and will keep readers engaged from start to end.
