Great read, and I love this website

Flipkart keeps finding new ways to make their customers happy, but delivering a 'free delivery' book on a sunday, the next day after the order being placed, takes it to a whole new level!
The book is a great read. I do have a thing for politics and economy so this would be my idea of a pageturner but even for the average student looking for a reference book this would be an ideal start.
