Concise edition is almost similar to the regular one!!!

It has almost everything covered and the only difference between it and the regular edition is that concise edition doesn't have maps.

Buy this version and save your money :)

good book for people preparing for exams that have a general knowledge section.

I bought this book for my sister who was preparing for her entrance exams where general knowledge was one the sections in examination. She found this book quite helpful. It was to-the-point and nicely compiled.

not too good

although the book is packed with huge information, but i can tell you from my personal experience that most of the dates and years given in the book are incorrect,
the history portion is full with mistakes.
although you can buy it on a special bargain at flipkart..

recomended :- buy if you dont get any other better book

It is concise :P

As the name suggest this book provides knowledge which is actually required for competitive exams and is really concise. If you want to study GK out of interest then I'd recommend Manorama but if u r studying for any competitive exam, then this is the best. :)
