Easy-going languge and well-presented facts with colored charts are iys strength

Its an international standard book, never hesitate to buy tour copy at a throwaway price.

Flipkart's delivery system is fabulous and unmatcheable.

ocean in pot

Marvellous in illustrating the difficult subject in very lucid style.Tried to digest maximum knowledge in minimum words.book is highly worth purchasing, but delivery service of Flipkart is very poor & price is also at higher side.Import edition, which is very costly, is not much different from indian reprint which is very cheap. So better buy indian print.
