This account of Nasir's time in government is forthright and as blunt as the man. It is incredibly detailed and the author must have surely kept huge diaries, something all public officers should do.

There are a few typos and spelling errors that suggest a more thorough edit could have been done. But, overall, reading this book was an excellent way to start the year.
