The Polyester Prince: The Rise of Dhirubhai Ambani is an unauthorized biography of Indian business tycoon and Reliance Industries founder Dhirubhai Ambani. The book was written by Australian journalist Hamish McDonald and first published by Allen & Unwin, an Australian publisher, in 1998. The book was never published in India and was banned there.

Contents

Content

McDonald interacted with and interviewed many people who had known Mr. Ambani personally, including politicians, businessmen, lawyers and media persons. Some interviewees requested anonymity due to their personal and professional relationship with the Ambani family or to his political influence.

The book illustrates Ambani's journey from school teacher's son in Gujarat to a business tycoon. It documents Ambani's influence on politics and some of the allegations made against him.

Indian ban

McDonald expressed surprise that HarperCollins India had even attempted to publish the book. An injunction was taken out against publication in 1998. After the injunction, an expurgated edition, entitled Ambani & Sons, was approved for publication.
