Lovely book, an 80 train journey that takes you across the globe with all its in-depth intricacies.

You marvel at the language, wonder at the observation while you get a ring side view of countries and cultures

Soulless and meaningless

A book that has no sense of meaning. A lot of jargon, many theories but at the end of the book, no one insight to carry forward

Bob Iger’s journey from the lowest rungs of an organisational hierarchy to the topmost level is very well written and shared. Through his eyes we can see how the sports and entertainment industry has moved over the last four decades. There are quite a few nuggets of wisdom that one can pick up in this journey.


A brilliant book covering a massive canvas

William Dalrymple delivers yet again. His ability to weave sub plots together and bring history alive remains unequalled.

A very important book for every Indian who thinks that the British were the best thing to happen to India.

Powerful, evocative, unsettling - do give it a listen

Sid Sagar, who delivers it to us should have acquainted himself with Indian names before embarking on this project. The pathetic rendition of the names is the biggest blemish of the audio book.

Exciting book

The book grows slowly on you and then it becomes impossible to switch the audio off

A good book but fails from becoming great as it meanders in many directions. A good book for lawyers, cops - all negotiators

If you love reading about the World War and if you like Winston Churchill’s English, this is a heady concoction.

Almost mesmerising at many times, this books makes compelling listening.
