For over four decades, Azim Hasham Premji has been a czar of India Inc. Taking over his family business of vegetable oils at a young age after the passing of his father, he built one of India's most successful software companies and a multi-billion-dollar conglomerate. As of 2019, he was the tenth richest person in India with an estimated net worth of $7.2 billion. Yet, the one facet that has overshadowed even his business achievements is his altruism. His commitment to the Azim Premji Foundation, a non-profit focused on education, totals around $21 billion, making him of the world's top philanthropists. Azim Premji: The Man Beyond the Billions, the first authoritative biography of the icon, peels the layers of Premji's life as it chronicles his professional and charitable work and his many strengths and shortcomings. Based on interviews with dozens of executives as well as competitors, analysts, family friends and industry associates, this is a candid account of how Premji made his billions and why he then chose to give them away.
