Book Reviews

I was very happy to read your book COMEBACK.
I have spent nearly 52 years of marketing in different good companies.
I am telling all my friends to read this book.

Your COMEBACK is really very good.

With Regards
Jagdish Gupte.

Congratulations on writing such a wonderful book.

It was one of the best books I have read in recent times. I started reading the book when my flight took off from pune to Delhi and completed it when it was about to land in Delhi . Believe me I was so engrossed that I was unaware that I was in a flight. I must also add that it was one of the few books I completed from start to end without taking a break.

I am still finding it difficult to believe it is a fiction.

The book captures brilliantly what has been really happening in quite a few promotor led construction companies in india except for The Comeback which is rare.

It has been a truly a inspiring experience.

Dear sir,

I happened to read your book ‘The Comeback’ ?recently and thought it truly deserves a reading by upcoming entrepreneurs & students of business & management. The plot of the book is extremely relevant to the current times and the 7 step pyramid theory applies to virtually every sector / line of business.? Besides, the poem ‘Don’t Quit’ has found its place on the pin-up board ?of my office cabin!

I would be writing to my alma ?mater – S P Jain Institute of Management & Research, Mumbai (we correspond quite regularly as a part of the alumni program) recommending the book as a part of the curriculum / additional reading for the students of their course on ‘Family Managed Business’. I am sure they would consider it seriously courtesy the learning’s it imparts & the inspiration it injects!

I am an author myself and look at inspiration from every quarters. I can truly say that I found one in your book.

Keep up the good work.

Congratulate for writing such a wonderful book. It is very suitable for management students and it’s a wonderful case study. I belive it should be part of their curriculum. It has got great impact as the book is wonderfully written in very understanding language without so call management jargon.

I truly belive in turning every ‘SETBACK’ into a ‘COMEBACK’. This book will be my constant companion and source of inspiration.

Comeback is a great story about a business man battling all odds to survive bankruptcy and turn the business around. I started reading this book one sunday afternoon and finished it in 5 hours. I was so hooked on to the book that I didn’t feel like taking any break and after finishing the book I felt so happy and motivated. It’s a great book for all budding entrepreneurs and businessmen going through a rough patch.

It’s very easy to read, depicts in a simple way how marwari family businesses are run and common challenges which invariably each one of them faces. It also underlines the need of professional management of business which thankfully most of the family run large corporate houses in India is imbibing. The story about 7 step pyramid is quite insightful and provides tools of not just measuring your business value but also look at operational inefficiencies. I love the pencil example in explaining how we accrue things which we don’t really need and in turn block resources and space. I love the ending of the book with explanation of step 7 which mostly we ignore.

As an avid business reader I would say its a refreshing read. I would strongly recommend this book for anyone who needs a pep talk. The book does complete justice to the objective of explaining the comeback and motivating the readers to fight back.

On the flip side, I felt that it would have been great to associate some sense of timelines with each event. For eg. What was the initial investment, When did the brothers start the business, what happened to the electric business, when did Shailesh move to Bangalore, How did Nilesh end with in stock brokering when he use to travel to mumbai to liason with govt officials?

The book `The Comeback’ reminded me of the IPO epidemic which hit the capital market in early 1980s and 1990s. Those were the days of window dressings, the race for higher and higher premiums, which totally neglected the intrinsic value and which lead to a spate of business failures. Even the Merchant Bankers were party to this game of ” Premiums “. Those were the days of Controller of capital issues ” and creative accounting was the name of game. I have experienced some of the things which are mentioned in the book and hence got engrossed in.

– Prof. (Dr.) Vishwanath D Karad, Founder President, World Peace Center, MAEER’s MIT, Pune.

Indeed its very well written. The second half of the Novel is useful for any businessman to follow.

It should be an eye opener for many in the construction business and may be for other businesses too.

– Kishor Chandak, CMD, Chandak Developers Pvt. Ltd.

The character of Harsh Mehta, driven by values and rock solid integrity comes across as a very well defined personality.

The decline in business and also ‘The Comeback’ is seamless and gradual, thus seems very natural.

The prescribed seven step ‘Pyramid’ theory for regaining lost ground can be practiced by any individual who is caught in a situation, by remaining focused.

Its an absorbing and riveting read, the language is simple, incisive and direct. Racy narration made me go from cover to cover in one single stretch. Won’t be surprised if it is lapped up by any National level Management Institute as a ‘case study’.

Overall, a good and paisa vasool reading experience, ,
