    It was a short read. Also a one time read book. First part includes Narayana Murthy's early life, and second part consists of Infosys and its policies. But you can get more on NR Narayana Murthy while search on internet than given in this book. I love to read books, speacially biographies as it motivates me to do something incredible. Narayan Murthy is one such personality but this book has not done justice. One of my favorite highlight of this book was a line said by Narayana Murty ‘I am one of It was a short read.

    Great visionary par excellence fondly called NRNM. Narayana Murthy was one of the seven co-ownership of Infosys. His views and tenets were value based. It is because of NRNM, that we are able to the IT boom in India. The goodwill created by Infosys was responsible for other MNCs to relocate their offshore accounts to India. Indeed a great visionary who still lead a simple life.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. A good to start and end in a same day. No much details about what people want to read for a business ideas. Risks taken by such entrepreneurs are not so much popularly known. But, i can remember how Steve's biogrophy partly had lot of such stuffs carved in his biography. A good book to read and learn in one day. I like that he never gave into the pressure or ideas of anyone. A good to start and end in a same day.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this quick read about Murthy and origin story of his brain child and my first company , Infosys. first half of the book kept me hooked on. however later half was more about the practices that Infosys followed rather about Murthy, it was a welcome read. Recommend this to former colleagues.

    It is an inspirational book for everyone. The first few chapters give an account of Mr. NR Narayana Murthy’s humble beginnings and the persistence to achieve what he set out to in spite of adversity. Some of his experiences/stories are inspiring and heartwarming. However once the journey of Infosys begins personal/professional stories which I was looking for in an autobiography were missing. Infosys and Mr. Murthy are synonyms which are quite natural, the book then deals with the journey of Info It is an inspirational book for everyone.

    YASHWANT RAM MEESALA

    Good brief insight into the life of Mr. Narayana Murthy, would have loved to read much deeper and current biography, but worth a read for budding entrepreneurs to learn about ethics and values to imbibe when building a company that you want to last for decades to come.
