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.
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.
