    35 Star rounded up to 4 A good history of the Indian car industry through the 1920s to the present This is mostly narrated in the form of the search for people's car It also covers the invention of the automobile and how the Ford Model T and other peoples cars such as the Citroen 2CV and Volkswagen helped drive the penetration of the automobile in their respective countries France and Germany The book goes deeper into the formation of Maruti Udyog and the political machinations behind it The history of how the nano was conceived and put together and was an unfortunate failure is also covered in some detail The only other manufacturer that is covered in some detail is the Hyundai which has captured a significant amount of market share from both Tata and Maruti over the yearsThe photographs and the historicalpolitical context given in the book add an extra dimension and do not make it a dry read A very good overview of the Indian car industry through the ages
