Not the usual pensive or smug mugshot but a top-angle photograph of a man at ease. Content and relaxed as he may seem, the pages that follow give you an insight into the relentless pursuit of entrepreneurial glory that Ronnie Screwvala set off his early days as a simple Grant Road boy.

From pioneering cable TV into India to manufacturing toothbrushes; from being in front of the camera to TV channels; from gaming to a movie studio - throughout the book, the author consistently underpins the value of the building blocks of a successful business:.

Even when UTV faced challenges after Doordarshan cancelled one of their shows, clear communication with his team helped Ronnie retain their support and bravely accept a deferment in their pay. Offices need not be fancy, but should have liveliness, interaction and energy.
Town halls and team gatherings are important ways to build and reinforce culture, not just in what the founder says but how it is said; a spirit of humour and wit also helps.
Ronnie sends an annual email to all employees at the end of each year, reviewing the highlights and inspiring them to tackle the next year with well-branded and catchy calls to action.
Relentless analysis helps identify new opportunities; identifying risks and wrong courses is much harder. He learnt this the hard way through the movie flops Chance Pe Dance and Joker — he could see that the movies were not working out right halfway through production, but was not able to pull the plug.
