An original and thought-provoking book by an IIM professor

Duryodhan was a man of strong character and integrity. Duhshasan was respectful, generous and kind towards women. Shakuni was a very simple man who loved his subjects unconditionally. Duryodhanization refers to the birth and processes of development of a villainous character - whether in works of history or mythology. In this book, Uppal ekes out the dark side of management and leadership by studying fascinating characters from the Mahabharta. He probes what it really means to be a villain, and if villainous traits are inherent or cultivated.

Original and thought-provoking, the book draws from history, mythology and literature, and unpacks the process of villainization through the central character of the legendary villain, Duryodhana.
