This book is refreshingly good as it deals with the most controversial and misunderstood Mughal emperor without any bias. Must read! --By Gopalan on 14 May 2017
Great book to know about facts of that period and brought into light many events that colonial rulers had hidden to implement divide and rule policy. Many negative ratings are really biased and I think they not read the book which is very much secular --By BAIG MOHIDDIN on 14 May 2017
Author had did great job in finding hidden content. Really enjoyed every page of this book. Definitely it won't disappoint. --By Amazon Customer on 14 May 2017
