The second half of the book becomes interesting with the mentions about Afghanistan and how the tussle for domination ended in the unending war in Afghanistan. The ending of the book is also good. Thoroughly enjoyed reading the mentionings of Afghanistan, ISI and RAW. The book could have been much better if it was written more specifically atleast about Asia, instead of generalizing the global espionage scenario. If you are aware of espionage stuff you'll get bored, freshers may like this one
However, for some reason, he put too much general stuff and platitudes in the book. I had to skip large parts of it. I mean I really don't need long write ups on how the internet has changed the whole world, full of data you can find on, where else, the internet! I think he should have had a very good editor edit the book of fluff.
There should have been more details on Indian intelligence operations and the insight into the unique challenges India faces in its neighborhood. It also could have delved into what really are India's threats and what aren't. there shouldn't be much political controversy in that. That's sorely missing in the book
Many of the hidden points have been explained clearly and in simple language.
Book is not for those who are expecting insider stories or classified mission details. Book goes by explaining past, coming to present day challenges and challenges future might bring and solutions to those.
Lastly... delivery was as expected by Amazon (Guaranted one day), very happy for this.
Quality of book is nice and no defect in product.
Cudos to publisher.
