A terrible book!

I still cannot believe that this book has been recommended as a text by some of the services exam toppers. The book is that terrible! It's not even suitable for cursory reading.

The tone of book is incoherent. The emphasis on topics is misplaced. And it's not that the book is outdated for 2010's (yes, modern history books can get outdated), it's just that I can't imagine that this book was useful to anyone even twenty years back. At best, this book can be a pointer to all the topics to be read for basic world History and then one can probably cover from Wikipedia or google them up!

But most of all, the book needs some major editing. Hungary is misspelled as Hungry. Czech Republic as Check Republic. And in one map, even India is misspelled as Idnia. And I can go on and on about mistakes that are especially unpardonable for a book supposed to be a World History textbook.

In fact, the book seems to be a good old cut-paste job, but from all the wrong sources. Please don't buy it and save 400.

PS: I must admit that the first few pages are a good laugh though: the book is dedicated to his father referred to as 'The Holy Radiance' and what not. And then comes the best part: a fable involving pigeons and teamwork from the pen of Mr. Jain's son, an engineer-turned-entrepreneur. The moral of the fable is explained in case we don't get it.
