My favourite book is Dhirubhai Ambani, The Man I Knew written By Kokilaben D Ambani.

This book actually covers each and every aspect of Reliance founder Dhirubhai Ambani -- right from his childhood days till his last few days.

Kokilaben D Ambani has provided detailed aspects about Ambani's life as if it were a movie running in front of us.

From the time he landed his first job in Aden, Yemen to how he started his first business as a spice trader in somebody's house.

The book also covers the bond the family shares with each other, the launch of first IPO in India, so on and so forth.

Whenever he went to collect money to run his business, Dhirubhai would tell his borrowers 'If it's profit, it will be ours and if loss, it will be mine.'

This book is around 338 pages and it's worth reading for all.

Imran also shared a page from the book which he found interesting.
