Mukesh Ambani turns author

A book on Reliance, its founder (Dhirubhai Ambani) and the Ambani brothers (Mukesh and Anil) have always created tremendous interest. It happened with Hamish McDonald’s The Polyester Prince: The Rise of Dhirubhai Ambani published in 1998. The same buzz was seen recently when McDonald’s Ambani & Sons, an updated version of the The Polyester Prince, was published in India by Roli Books.

The above books were neither authorised by the Ambani family nor by the company and therefore have rubbed the Ambanis the wrong way.

Now, Mukesh Ambani, chairman and managing director of Reliance Industries (RIL) has decided to write a book on the company and how it has come to become India’s largest private sector company. “The book is being written by Mukesh Ambani with the support of a team of 5-6 people within RIL,” a person familiar with the development told Financial Chronicle.

The book being published by Penguin is scheduled to be released in April 2011. A formal announcement of the book deal with the publisher is likely to be held in December.
