All in all, read only if you have to. Its a missable book. Disappointed.
Frankly, the only thing that is exciting about this book is its Title. The dialogues/discussion among the two ex-spy agency bosses appear very "normal" given the title of this book. OK, you may get to know a fact or two from this book which you may not have heard elsewhere, but this isn't any "great revealer" of information that we already do not know.
I felt that RAW's A.S. Dulat (having also read his other book, the Kashmir, Vajpayee Years) is yet to come out of the mid-90's mindset .
Frankly, Mr Dulat plays the SECOND FIDDLE in this book, while ISI's Asad Durrani has the upper hand in what he says and talks. It almost looks like Dulat was "trying to please" General Saheb (Durrani) and was doing "neutral speaking" so as not to upset the General.
ISI's Durrani was more assertive and blunt when making statements.
The author AS Sinha could have asked a little more prodding and relevant (and exciting) questions , but lost the opportunity to do so.
Verdict : Nothing new or exciting. You will NOT MISS MUCH if you choose not to read this book.
On a serious note, I was expecting an intriguing narration on the roles of two competent agencies, their achievements and follies. Instead I got a reader's digest story kind of sweet story
This book does not discuss about spys or any cinematic spy operations.
But it discusses the internal attitude of the RAW and ISI officers .
Track 2 diplomacy
The government's fake response to Pakistan cool people down after a terrorist attack.
It also dicusses the short comings of CIA and also RAW and ISI.
It also compared
The interaction of RAW with Indian Government
The interaction of ISI with Pakistani Government.
This book is a very good read
