Amish Tripathi the author on Tuesday revealed Amish Tripathi the negotiator.
Tripathi, who was at IIM Calcutta to collect the distinguished alumnus award, told Metro how his B-school stint helped his writing career.
"From my IIM education, I learnt to negotiate my contracts hard and see to it that my books are marketed well. I have learnt a lot about negotiating contracts," Tripathi said.
He said knowing the art of negotiating was crucial to becoming a successful author. "Writing, in a way, is a business too. It is a small-scale industry," he said.
