Otherwise known for its slow economic growth, today there is a new India. Why else would Wal-mart, GE and Microsoft open operations here and pour funds into the country.

With a growing middle class and booming markets, India holds much promise for investors. Riding the Indian Tiger shows you how to get in on the ground floor and profit from India’s economic boom.

The History of India in eight pages is a wonderful read to begin with. The pages cover years of history from colonialism to socialism to vibrant capitalism. In a land now known for the Tata Nano, the author reminds us how to took 10 years to receive permission to buy a car and 8 years to get permission to buy a motorbike.

This is followed by an economic tour through India covering the length and breadth of the country. Recording the change in the Indian mindset, the authors give instances where not so long ago Indians would not be willing to pay for parking and certainly not for a toll road – both these have now become a permanent part of the Indian landscape.

India, the authors say, is like a boulder: For many years, the economy remained stagnant and resistant to change; stifled under the misguided direction of a socialist government and a command economy – but not its starting to move.
