I have read the Harvard Business Review since 2004 from Muscat to Mumbai via Singapore, Dubai, and Delhi. Fortunate to have academic parents who never shied from spending money behind books and magazines. Our wealth is in our library at home in Mumbai residence.
Lucky to have found bookstores like Border and Kinokuniya in the Gulf, Bahrisons in Delhi to Thambi Magazine Stall at Holland Village in Singapore who stock up on HBR.
I have never managed to attend business school due to monetary constraints but have been an entrepreneur since I was in college writing and building stuff. HBR for eighteen years has been my Business School each month.
After being unable to find a bookstore in Mumbai which stocks up on HBR since August, I ordered a hard copy (better format for learning) on the Harvard Business Publishing Website for the first time, paying 2.5x of the retail price in Singapore. Well, it reached me in four days at home, right in time for the reading weekend.
Learning compounds each day, and it is an investment that I never shy away from as a consultant, entrepreneur and para-academic.
