After being asked by Harvard Business Review to write a case study on how her family owned business walked away from a $2.5 billion offer from Coca-Cola, Tran decided to write the book, Competing With Giants: How One Family-Owned Company Took on the Multinationals and Won, that would teach people exactly how to do it in their own business.
