A Foyer Where Squirrels Play

Anilaadum Mundril - loosely translated as A Foyer Where Squirrels Play - is a wonderful trip down the memory lane. Especially, if you grew up in the state of Tamil Nadu.

I picked up this book for two reasons: 1) I started hearing about Sir Richard Branson very frequently 2) The tagline ‘Secrets They Won’t Teach You at Business School’ was appealing. This book is a collection of all the articles and the Q&A by Sir Branson published at different times.
