In an exclusive book, insiders of the Tata businesses open up to Peter Casey for the first time to tell the story of the Tatas. From its humble beginnings as a mercantile company to its growth as a successful yet philanthropic organization to its recent brush with Mistry, The Story of Tata is a must read for every business-minded individual.
In 1868, Jamsetji Tata, a visionary of his time, lit the flame that went on to become Tata and its group of companies. This business grew into an extraordinary one. One that some may even call ‘the greatest company in the world’. Over the decades, the business expanded and prospered under the leadership of the various keepers of the flame, such as Sir Dorabji Tata, J.R.D. Tata and Ratan Tata, to name a few.
But one day, the headlines boldly declared that the chairman of the board of Tata Sons, Cyrus Mistry, had been fired.
What went wrong?
This book explores the rise and fall of Cyrus Mistry as we have never seen it before and includes never-seen-before correspondence between Ratan Tata and Cyrus Mistry. It also offers an insider’s look into the company that is widely heralded as one of the most successful and ethical businesses in the world.
Statement from Ratan Tata
“Over the last few years much has been written about my tenure as Chairman of Tata Sons. Many of the writings were by people who did not possess detailed knowledge of the events or by people who held biased positions. Peter’s book does not seem to hold biased positions.”
Ratan N. Tata, Chairman Emeritus, Tata Sons. Chairman, Tata Trusts
