Best for GS- Economy

for Economy not as optionals for Civil services this book is best.
Other books take u to other level of the course - probably PhD or something which is not needed for GS .
This book has covered all the portions needed and is sufficient .
one can go for Dutt and Sundaram or Mishra&Puri if Economy as optionals have been taken.

Taking off 1 star for No MCQ's in the whole book.

Concept wise - 5/5
explanation - 5/5
Printing and appearance - 5/5
MCQ's - 0/5
Syllabus coverage - 5/5

This covers almost the entire spectrum of topics, but lacks depth and subtlety. In many places the explanations were casual and redundant.

But good as a reference book, especially helps one know of the important topics. Should be supplemented by a more comprehensive book.

A Must Read Book on Indian Economy

I had purchased several books on Indian economy, but all those were quite boring & concept wise very poor. I didn't get any definition or concept as crystal clear in these book. After the recommendation of some friends I bought this book. Aah..... what a book....really awesome... I m not from economic background but still this books taught me Economy in a very easy & lucid manner. Explanations, topic selection..... everything is very good. Its worth reading this book. The book, you will like to read again & again :)
