My 6th book by the author and it is typical - Some parts (the first 2 chapters) are dry, some are sensible with valuable insights. This book is a good defense and analysis of Gandhi's words and actions ; at times a bit over-enthusiastic but is not one-sided. Gandhi's thoughts on "black kaffirs" and the chapter on Hind Swaraj surprised me. U learn something new from each book u read !
Do remember that this is not a biography, and I would recommend reading a biography of Gandhi before reading this
