The author, in her book, has in­ter­viewed peo­ple with dif­fer­ent na­tion­al­i­ties such as Bri­tish, Ara­bic, Amer­i­can, Chi­nese, Korean, In­dian, Greek and Ital­ian. She has ex­am­ined how th­ese peo­ple be­came lead­ers, what worked for them, what risks they took, what they learnt from their mis­takes and what good de­ci­sions they made. She has in­cluded var­i­ous in­spi­ra­tional sto­ries in­clud­ing the story of the first fe­male com­mis­sioner of Asian po­lice who was given the task of trans­form­ing one of the world’s most cor­rupt pris­ons. Dut­tagupta from her ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence and re­search has pro­vided in her book a frame­work of ten tools.

As the ti­tle of the book states ‘It’s in your DNA’, Dut­tagupta ar­gues that Lead­er­ship is an in­born trait pos­sessed by ev­ery hu­man be­ing. She de­bates on the im­por­tance of ac­knowl­edg­ing this trait within our­selves and how we can en­hance it. This can in­crease our po­ten­tial and max­imise our achieve­ments and lead­er­ship qual­i­ties.
