Gautam Adani needs no introduction. One of the richest men in the world, he also helms a business empire that is now India's largest player in ports and renewable energy. He is also the country's largest private sector player in sectors like airports, city gas distribution, power transmission, thermal power, edible oil, and railway lines. Yet, look beyond these facts, and startlingly little is known about Gautam Adani, the maverick businessman; about his motivations and vision; about his life, and the episodes, minor and major, that propelled him to make the choices he did. This book sheds light on all that we have never known, but should know, about Gautam Adani. It delves deep, detailing a range of fascinating anecdotes from Gautam Adani's life, illuminating his early childhood, his initiation into business, and the learnings and opportunities he exploited. But beyond biography, this book is committed to analysing those business strategies of Gautam Adani that have intrigued all. It marries biography and business data, storytelling and hard numbers. Besides, it has been authored by one of India's most senior journalists who has long followed Gautam Adani's career.
