I can't understand why this book is getting good reviews! Are you guys even reading it? It's loaded with mistakes.
I can't mention all here but I'll point out one that should stop you from buying books by this author (Manohar Pandey) in future.
Check page 116.
"The first city on which the atom bomb was dropped: Neil Armstrong followed by Edwin E Aldrin"
Comprehensive for price tag of INR 25, includes just about everything in 64 pages, however I would like to bring to light some mistakes
-Longest Railway tunnel in Seikam is in Japan (mentioned Jaipur) also its SEIKAN according to wikipedia
-First Muslim Prime minister of the world is NOT Mrs Sirimavo Bandaranaike, she is the fist woman head of a government.
-Tallest statue of Lord buddha is in Tokya(Jaipur mentioned here again)
-The first city in which the atom bomb was dropped is mentioned as NEIL ARMSTRONG FOLLOWED BY EDWIN ALDRIN
LOT of spelling mistakes in General Knowledge can make a difference between winning and losing in quiz competitions.
example- Assom, Anokor Vat, Bassilica of St.Potor could be many more.
I am not a GK expert but I expect many more flaws in it.
Guys at flipkart please check it before its sold again.
Certainly not the book to be given to kids. Others kindly go through book very well to see why.
Flip kart review :
Order placed on : 13 August 2012, 4:35 AM
Received on : 14 August 2012, between 1 - 4 PM
Packing : There was a card board of + design in which book was folded into and secure, and then inside book was placed in a polythene cover sealed completely making it water proof and dust proof. So this packing deliver you the exact copy of the book provided by maker.
Also i would like to thank flip kart if they have putted effort in checking book for misprints and bad-binding before supplying to customers, because the book i received was simply a fine piece free from misprints and bad-binding. Or it was just my luck!
This experience was different from buying a book from a book store where you have to waste time, put effort, face crowd on bookshop, (if people still stupid to buy from bookshops and hassling there) they sell it on mrp and what you get? a dusty damaged book full of misprints and bad binding, because they don't care to check for customers, But flipkart do :).
Book review :
mrp : 25, price i got on flipkart : 25 :( (price should be 22), last page count : 128, price per page : 5 around, but that is because size is small : 21mm * 13.5mm * 0.6 mm
content : a quick reference to gk most things you need to know and should be known. if you know this book every word, you can score 30% + marks for sure in every gk exam.
my needs : just wanted to know some basic gk,book served my purpose.
for Rs18 the book is great but the printing ink used is not water proof.
the book covers all the important aspects of general knowledge like current affairs, Indian history, Indian constitution, economics and banking knowledge and general science.
i can recommend this to every one and book is nice step in spreading general awareness in society since its such a low cost edition.
