A book dedicated to Nehru bashing!.
The opening chapter on India's current status is good. The initial chpaters on Nehrus policy in Kashmir, Tibet and China are details.
Rest is pure Nehru bashing. Many of it are true and Many of the them are biased!

Poor editing of book. Many sentence will be repeated again and again.
