I was a little skeptical of whether I would find this interesting. Not being a non fiction reader for most part of my life, I thought I was taking a gamble. Well, this was a gamble that paid off. It is a very very good book that requires a little patience to read through. Although I would like a word against Mr. Sen for sticking on to "Hindu Extremism" for quite a while during the first few chapters which probably required deeper investigation.
However, apart from that very minute lapse, I feel this is a very authoritative book from a well arguing man!
Must read for those who are preparing for competitive exams and those who would like to a critical glimpse at India and her citizens
I wouldn't recommend this book to anybody. Sorry, but it is simply too expensive for a book full of quotes. I honestly expected much more.
The book begins with the well known story of training the chambermaids but then goes on as mere translations of Sun Tzu. How many of us are going to fight an ancient battle anyway? It should have been more connecting to contemporary decision making rather than just translation.
