Vishnu Chevli
During one of my electives (corporate strategy) in NITIE Mumbai, we were taught by visiting faculty how technology usage (mind its usage, not availability) had changed two banking entities in the private sector. Faculty told us that government banks had computers way before ICICI & HDFC banks had. But they used IT only for record-keeping.

I've a lot of respect for Tamal's insights on Indian banking. This book doesn't do any justice to it.

A book that provides context to look at the bank within

As someone who has had no direct experience with HDFC Bank and only some indirect experience while visiting the branches with friends or family, I wasn't sure as to why this bank is named India's most valuable brand and why it commands the respect that it does.

This book has helped me understand the bank and its journey and has also given me insight into the future roadmap to help understand if the bank should be able to maintain that

Largely the same as "A Bank for the Buck".
I expected better stuff on what the bank is doing on the digital front; but turns out its just a lot of fluff.

Avoid this if you have the above book; if you dont have the above book - get this.

If read first version this is absolute waste of money

Book is clean copy of first version with just 1 additional chapter
If didn't read 1st one this one is worth it, or else I thought its waste of money
Could have came up with short read and kept it much cheaper
