A biography worth your time

User Review  - Krutik Arekar - Flipkart

Absolutely a very good book. The only complain is about the product, Little, Brown books seem to be very poorly made for India- I ended up pasting 2 halves of the book. Get the Random House paper back instead. Fascinating content though. Read full review
