    Not impressed with the stuff. Very less informative.

    About Book:
    Book has decent quality pages. Does not have that level of information as expected but has some information that is missing in other reading source.
    Overall not so worthy to spend a thousand bucks on it.
    About Flipkart:
    Seller shipped the item almost after 6 days. I ordered on 19th, seller shipped the order on 25th.
    Very poor packaging: When I received the parcel, the book has cover page torn off.
    Seller: MulliganBbh (Buy from any other seller)
