Review:

"Shashi Tharoor's livelier, shorter essay has a...personal perspective [and] apocryphal stories. [An] excellent chapter on Nehru's legacy." - The Independent "A good summing up of Nehru's triumphs and failures...Tharoor's style is smooth and pleasant." - New York Times Book Review "[This] short and highly readable life never lacks for pithy phrases and strong opinions...Tharoor writes with shrewd wit." - Publishers Weekly"
