He is a man of principles and has built an empire on a virtue system that, in my opinion, needs to implemented immediately. The book can get repetitive at places because these are speeches If we had more men like Murthy, India would hold the position of honor on the World arena for reasons more than one.
The book can get repetitive at places because these are speeches given at various institutes and colleges and the underlying themes are essentially the same. But it left me feeling sad because this book will not be read by those in authority who I assume are mostly illiterate and it will take strong will to fight opposing elements in the system.
It is a compilation of Mr. I found them to be less relevant in the world of today. The book is old in its thinking. His name on the book alone can make the reader feel excited about the discussion inside it.

I wonder how this thing relates with our politicians! But still, Mr Murthy is a voice which should be given a respectable hearing even if voice gets irritatingly redundant in facts and narration and his vast experience could be of great resource for the nation. So much so about the Legends!
