Publisher's Summary

When The Accidental Prime Minister was published in 2014, it created a storm and became the publishing sensation of the year. The Prime Minister’s Office called the book a work of "fiction", the press hailed it as a revelatory account of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s first term in UPA.

Written by Singh’s media adviser and trusted aide, the book describes Singh’s often troubled relations with his ministers, his cautious equation with Sonia Gandhi, and how he handled the big crises from managing the left to pushing through the nuclear deal. Insightful, acute, and packed with political anecdotes, The Accidental Prime Minister is one of the great insider accounts of Indian political life.

Excellent Book and worth reading that many Hours.

My respect for Dr Singh will be high after reading this. It is INC who is at loss and could not use such a wonderful persons caliber. Great loss to the country.

Well balanced content with good narration

The book is good in terms of its content with a balanced approach taking into account the person and position of the Prime Minister. The objectivity is well defined and keeps the book at a good tempo - though the chronology is not in order and can make time track a strugge.

The narration is brilliant with good delivery, pauses and modulation.
