Soumendu Ganguly Vice President - Product and Marketing at India based Sulekha.com, an online firm that connects users with businesses, talks about the latest books that he has read.

Interviewed by Avanish Tiwary


Shoe Dog

In the book, Phil talks about a friend, a runner called Steve Prefontaine. He tells us how he saw Prefontaine in one of his PreOlympic races, in which he was running in second position and within the last 100 yards, dig in deep and come up with a whole new level to win the race. It is then that Prefontaine says, ‘Somebody may beat me, but they are going to have to bleed to do it’. This is one quote that has stayed with me. I might lose to better talent but never for want of effort.

The Gene

The book talks about heredity and our quest for it. It starts before Mendel and Darwin and traces the history of genetics to recent work on Cancer. The thing that I felt after reading this book was how human biases have been there over centuries and how these biases make us blind to the simple truths that lie before us. It is extremely important that we are aware of our biases to overcome them

The Innovator’s Dilemma

The book talks in detail about how again and again we have seen companies who once were leaders in their field not being able to adapt to change in technology and become irrelevant. The book talks about how it is not lack of effort but processes that once made you great, eventually become the cause of your death. The book goes on to tell how you can avoid this trap and stay relevant and also sensitizes you to the hard decisions you need to make in order to achieve this.
