I had picked this book just by reading the back cover in a book fair and it looked exciting for sure! The author is a veteran-journalist-turned-novelist so it had all ingredients to be a great book but it just turned out to be one of those book which you like it while reading and then forget all about it after you are done.

The story started well but slowly it went over-the-top with the incidents and events which somehow is unbelievable to me. I was expecting a very real kind of book from an experienced journalist and not a movie plot and that is where i got big time disappointed. The details on back room maneuvering in media has been well put for sure and gives a great insight in that world.

So read it to get an idea on how "Fourth Estate" is being used so well by people to make and affect opinions in a democratic Country where all that matters is "image" which can be built or killed in public domain in todays world!
