The Polyester Prince

‘The Polyester Prince ‘ by Hamish McDonald is an unofficial biography of Shri Dhirubhai Ambani.I personally enjoyed the book and gained from reading it.There is much in the book to inspire people starting out on their personal entrepreneurial journeys.
Dhirubhai was not born to privilege.He didn’t have much of a formal education.It was sheer enterprise , hard work , measured risk taking , a fighting – spirit , good people skills , networking , thinking out of the box , seizing opportunities and great execution skills that helped him make his fortune.This book details many of the incidents of his life.It can be mined for information on how to grow one’s business and deal with the day to day problems faced in building a business from scratch.
Dhirubhai held the opinion that there could literally be thousands like him.This book is a great gift to give an friend who could potentially be one of those few thousand.Dhirubhai’s life-story is the encouragement and in this book is the information needed to get started as an entrepreneur.
