"India is not the next China but China–plus more successful with greater political stability and more rapid economic growth. The evidence is here. So are the Indian companies that are driving its transformation and the failures and successes of foreign companies that are trying to ride the tiger. The lessons from their experiences are spelled out for everyone interested in the Indian boom."
MARVIN ZONIS, Professor, Graduate School of Business,

"For many centuries, explorers tried to ride the Indian tiger, with little knowledge or respect for this incredibly complex civilization and its values. A new group of explorers, the international business community, is now trying again. This book powerfully explains the naiveté of trying to do business in India without an appreciation of the risks and rewards and the cultural challenges. India′s history, politics, and caste system influence its huge market in fascinating ways. Enjoy the reading and the ride."
PAULO CALDEIRA, venture capitalist
"Riding the Indian Tiger is valuable for a businessperson interested in the new India, and especially for the business traveler."
