Flipkart Official Review
McKinsey is perhaps one of the only companies who can get prolific list of thinkers to write essays on a single theme and get it published. Reimagining India is wisdom from every corner, to talk of the next big Superpower of Asia – the sub-continent of India.
Reimagining India is an interesting book – it has a take on everything culturally, politically and economically right and wrong with the country. From Mukesh Ambani to Bill Gates, there is a wide spectrum of writers. They speak of India’s rise – its foreign policy, growth prospects, and the competition that surrounds it and how can it thrive as well.
Reimagining India as a read sometimes could get monotonous, however it picks up pace in the right places. A read if you want to know more about where the country is heading and what is in store for all of us.
McKinsey and Company collect a series of essays from several eminent personalities on India and the direction the country is headed in Reimagining India.
Summary of the Book
Bringing together the thoughts of prominent personalities, this book throws light on India's present situation and shows the areas of growth. It examines India's true potentials and draws from people like Bill Gates, Mukesh Ambani, Fareed Zakaria, Eric Schmidt and Nandan Nilekani among others to put together a picture that breaks down India's current strengths and showcases the points of weakness in its political system. It is an indispensable resource for anyone seeking to understand how India is changing and how these changes will reflect long term in the global scenario.
