    Looks a book written in a hurry

    Modi's Lok Sabha 2014 campaign proves a great case study for the best of the B Schools in the world. It was flawless in execution, meticulous in planning to very minute detail and ruthless in driving home the right message to the people and got the desired results.

    Being a top journalist with enviable contacts that Rajdeep has, I brought this book with great anticipation that it will provide deeper insights and scholarly and masterful analysis of the above mentioned points and into the foll...

    Mediocre and stale

    This book is only for political and current affairs dummy. No perspectives or interesting stories. Any Tom, Dick and Harry could have written the book.

    Rajdeep is Circumcised!!

    Nothing new if you followed the 2014 elections closely.
    Author just tries to make readers believe that only Rajdeep is honest & unbiased in whole media world.

    Things I learnt after reading book:
    Rajdeep is circumcised
    He & Salman double-dated a girl
    Mamata cooks & serves food to him
    Arnab's show is full of noise (should agree to this)
    He was offered RS seat by many parties but he denies it owing to his journalistic ethics

    Giving 2 stars for accepting hard work of team Modi.

    Modi Bhakts will hate this book even without reading it.

    Rajdeep Sardesai may not be first thing that comes to your mind when it comes to ethics, however he is leaps ahead of other journalist, he has got integrity.

    Unlike other joins he did dump his views in favour of popular opinion. It cost hime is job and a lot more.

    He personifies the phrase "If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything"

    Must-read for future generation

    I'm not the biggest fan of Rajdeep these days but, this was the one book I wanted to read, to understand what lies in the mind of the star anchor of media world, who was once a model to me.

    Appreciate the honesty in which he wrote everything, though I'm sure there are many things he would not have shared. It is a suspense thriller: It gives a great insight into the elections, the backroom battle fought by the PR machinery, how images are made and broken, and, not to forget, some masala goss...

    Excellent work by Mr Sardesai

    The book includes everything that the papers and magazines missed during the elections. It also gives you a background about where NaMo and RaGa stood, before entering the election frenzy. Word of caution: Do not expect pointless gossip like how many papads does Modi have etc. If you wanna get the 2014 election right, this book is unmissable. Go ahead and order. Cheers.

    Just Average

    There is nothing special or spectacular that is offered by RS in the book. Also, has a lot of incoherent passages and repetitive phrases.
