Man has been advancing through a plethora of inventions and discoveries that have led to a tremendous transition in culture, education and perception of thoughts.
Nowadays, life hurtles ahead, leaving us with no time for inner growth. So we consider the tales of our ancestors and our epics as mere myths. This book emphasizes on the past of the human race and describes the link between the first man and the lineage of the Mahabharata.
The book also describes the various facts that led to the epic war of the Mahabharata. The author has portrayed the reasons due to which the Mahabharata war commenced, and has also explained the strategies employed in the war.
The Mahabharata is incomplete without the role of Lord Krishna. The book also portrays the lineage of Lord Krishna and describes his role in the Mahabharata war in depth.
Read Book 1, the Mahabharata, for a treasure house of ancient tales, with yet a touch of reason and reality in them!

He explains things to us in boring detail. There's chapters on Jaya, Vijaya (gatekeepers of heaven), chapters on the Universe - how it works, is calculated, chapters on Budh and his wife, Nahusa, Parashurama, Yayati, Puru and so forth.
With every page turn I think the actual story of the Mahabharat will begin. Hundreds of pages later, when the story still fails to start, I began checking all the pages ahead and found that this silly author has converted everything even remotely connected with the Mahabharata, into individual unconnected chapters i.e. where one chapter ends, the story does not continue into the next chapter. For example, there is a chapter titled "Shakuni" and it explains who he was and why he did what he did. Fair enough but the next chapter is on husbands and wives of all the characters in the Mahabharat. What has that got to do with Shakuni? The chapter after that is titled "Dronacharya and his teachings" and you are left wondering what has that got to do with any of the wives – see what I mean? There’s no Mahabharat story only highlights of the epic explained in individual unconnected chapters – I guess this is what the author meant by “retold” – but definitely not what the reader expected because the great epic is one continuous story – not unconnected extremely boring chapters.
Why the author did it this way is best known only to him. Personally, I feel this is just another "wanna be" author who hadn't the vaguest idea how to write a book.
