    Best for GS- Economy

    for Economy not as optionals for Civil services this book is best.
    Other books take u to other level of the course - probably PhD or something which is not needed for GS .
    This book has covered all the portions needed and is sufficient .
    one can go for Dutt and Sundaram or Mishra&Puri if Economy as optionals have been taken.

    Taking off 1 star for No MCQ's in the whole book.

    Concept wise - 5/5
    explanation - 5/5
    Printing and appearance - 5/5
    MCQ's - 0/5
    Syllabus coverage - 5/5

    This covers almost the entire spectrum of topics, but lacks depth and subtlety. In many places the explanations were casual and redundant.

    But good as a reference book, especially helps one know of the important topics. Should be supplemented by a more comprehensive book.

    The book can be bought as it would definitely help those seeking preparation for the upcoming UPSC and other services exam. It has detailed discussion on Indian economy and many aspects on it. Further, service of Flipkart is specially mentionable, for it has been delivered to my doorstep within 48 hrs. Thanx! indeed FLIPKART.

    Good but must be more elaborated

    Though its a good book but since writer was so bound to the number of pages he ended it in a hurry. It must be read by the civil service aspirants but after getting the clues from the book they must see the detailed matter through Internet or some thing like that. Its a good one but not the best for example GDP NDP must be taught in full details but here he just mentioned it. But above it its a good book but little bit expensive so must watch your budget.
