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...

A avoidable book

I am one of those who took sabbatical from my work and helped BJP for 6 months before election.

So, as an insider I can tell you, this book is rubbish. Most of the things written about BJP are product of Rajdeep's imagination.

Rajdeep is a top journalist and hence I find it hard to believe that he didn't have access to the correct info or may be he decided to manipulate it for reasons best known to him.

Overall a book best avoided.

A very good read

I bought this book from a local bookshop and started reading it over the weekend. Firstly, I was expecting a hurried, make some money sort of book but was pleasantly surprised that it was in fact well-written and had been edited well. There were no glaring typos and only a couple of spelling mistakes. As for the content, I am surprised at the negative reviews from people. I dont think they have read it at all. In fact, I got the impression that Sardesai is developing a grudging respect for Mo...

Nice presentation

nicely crafted content . Lot of rare facts which was not known and not noticed during modi's campaign are available here . It certainly gives an opportunity to see both sides of the coin which at times is important in long run .

an engaging, in-depth analysis of the groundbreaking elections

It's a brilliant book, superbly narrated. I don't know why early reviewers found it derogatory or offensive towards our current PM. This book provides a detailed analysis of the protagonists at the national stage as well as many of the regional leaders across the country. The writer and PM Modi has known one another since early 1990's and their relationship over the years has been well tracked. The writer has presented a balanced outlook and the book is in no way partisan. An unbiased and wel...

India's 'Game Change'....almost

In the analysis of the US presidential elections of 2012, two contrarian narratives emerged – one was the data driven methodology, pioneered by Nate Silver and later put into the form of a book by John Sides and Lynn Vavreck (‘The Gamble: Choice and Chance in the 2012 Presidential Election’), while the other was the blow by blow account of all behind the scene actions of the so-called game changing moments by Mark Helperin and John Heilemann (Double Down: Game Change 2012).
In his book ‘2014...

Mediocre Crap...

Ok - so as a lover of non fiction - I bought this book.....

Now having read it - I want to throw it into the dustbin - it is nothing but re hashed news from the General Election 2014...

All the themes & supposed insights that Sardesai explores have been well covered by the Mainstream media as well as the Social Media.

All Sardesai does is take cheap pot shots at all the ppl he is obviously not fond of or ideologically opposed to....he also carries an obvious candle for the Gandhi's and moa...

Quite engrossing

I may be reading the book at a slow pace but that's only because I do find this book highly engrossing.

My knowledge about Narendra Modi is sketchy at best. There were always these little pieces of information that was missing from the whole story, thereby preventing me from making an honest opinion of who or what is right.

I believe that if you come to this book with already some pre-conceived ideas about Rajdeep and Modi, then yes, you may end up loving / hating the book.

The truth is - ...

Waste of time

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