A wealth of detail, particularly about India's Pokhran nuclear tests, relationships with neighbours, and a wonderful insight into how foreign policies are conceptualised, and executed. Very informative, it is at the same time an autobiography, as well as being an incisive commentary on the political state of affairs today.
