    Waste of time

    Sheer waste of time. Nothing to read. Just a book to declare himself a hero and join politics later.

    Traitor Newstrader - we know him too well

    When I first heard about that fact that the book was written by Rajdeep Sardesai I was surprised - can Rajdeep write and that too a book? Notwithstanding what I know about him as a close follower of Indian political scene, I gave this book a chance. I bought his book. I was soon to regret it. The guy can't write well but has a grand impression of his importance (his name is the largest font on the cover). The book is riddled with typos.

    Rajdeep is a liar with poor conscience. He is known to ...

    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...

    Sheer waste of time and money!

    Inspite of having my reservations against this quisling of a journalist, I thought I might find some objective election analysis. However this book is full with his rather slanted one sided views, and reeks strongly of his political bias, which is unbecoming of a journalist who seeks to analyse elections objectively.
    If one has a sharp contempt for the money one earns or has a lot of time to waste, go for this drivel masquerading as a serious political work!

    As biased as one can get while trying to sound unbiased!

    Honestly speaking I read it in the faint hope that Mr. Rajdeep would try to be neutral and control his hatred for Narendra Modi in his book. I read the book in the hopes to see the insight of a man who had a long media career but alas I was expecting too much!

    From the very first chapter, Mr. Rajdeep is a self righteous journalist and as expected Modi is a power hungry politician.

    Mr. Rajdeep is a man who saves his team from mob by using his wits while Modi abused his authority and enginee...

    I, Me & Myself - RS version of History

    This book is less about elections, but more about clearing his name, settling scores, mending bridges etc. Its as neutral as neutral is RS conduct on TV debtates. Avoidable..

    Poor information :-(

    One of critic of new PM, Rajdeep had big trouble accepting the results of the election. To get better idea of the election one should better watch some of the Modi speeches instead of reading a biased book.
