Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By Siddharth Gharpure on 5 Jun. 2011
Format: Hardcover
If you like to read books related to finance and economics, this book is a great read. I have read several books on finance and economics like, Age of Turbulence by Alan Greenspan. Liers Poker by Michael Lewis, Too big to Fail by Andrew Ross Sorkin. All these books are great reads, but Imagining India: The Idea of a Renewed Nation kept me a lot more involved throughout the book. This is a well written book, very easy to understand. I would strongly recommend readers who want an understanding of how Indian policy affected its development to read this book.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Jitendra M. Patil on 14 Aug. 2009
Format: Hardcover
This the best book on India I have ever read. Nandan Nilekani nicely explains how India evolved, what are key strengths and weaknesses and pinpoints opportunities for the future. Everyone who wants to understand India and contribute to her future should read it.
