Must read for students of India's economic growth story
on 24 November 2016
For students of Indian stock market, this book is a fabulous read for the efforts taken by the author to chronicle its evolution from being a Wild West to a mature well-regulated one. The writing is breezy which makes the book a cover to cover type of a read as one is eager to know what's in store next. It's commendable that the book does not shy away from bringing to light the murky dealings and stock manipulation over the years. The timing of the book is absolutely right as we see a shift in investor mindset in India towards Equity investing. An interesting element of the book to me was the marriage of fictional and non-fictional material without making it disjointed at any given point in time. The only criticism would be the lack of a more detailed characterization of the lead protagonist and his world. But it is a minor flaw when seen from the perspective of the exhaustive market coverage that this book attempts to provide its readers. Looking forward to more books from the author. Well done Santosh Nair!
