Lovely book. Must read for anyone interested in Indian politics. This book is not about India in General. Mostly about Manmohan Singh, congress party, Sonia Gandhi etc.
After reading the book I have more respect for Manmohan for his abilities. More convinced that he lacks political skills and a strong spine. Even more distaste for Gandhi family and congress party in general. The later 2 (Gandhis and Congress) proved to be loathsome survivors rather than statesmen. They tried to project several good things done by Manmohan Singh as Rahul's victories. It was obvious to everyone how that was not the case. That's what 2014 elections proved.,£
Manmohan lacks spine, especially post 2009 elections, was something obvious from the book.
Great read. Author is smart, articulate and makes the points well. Never did I feel bored. He kept a good pace. Would highly recommend the book.
