A well-researched book and the authors have made real good effort to put such a complex issue as Gas Pricing in a proper perspective for the readers to understand. Though the subject has a lot of technicalities the authors have tried their best to keep it simple for readers to comprehend how manipulation is done at every stage to increase the Gas Prices. Having worked in the energy sector for over 25 years I could relate very well to the situations well described in this book. The authors should be commended for taking great efforts to put all information in a most exhaustive manner to the readers.
The nexus between the politicians, bureaucrats and business houses is the essence of crony capitalism that continues to plague this country. Strongly recommend that every Indian should read this book.
I appeal to both the authors and the publisher to have this book translated in all possible Indian Languages so that more people are aware of the behind the scenes of Indian Politics and the game the politicians, businessmen and bureaucrats play in tandem to fool the people of this country, irrespective to which political party they belong.

Paranjoy has delved deep into the documents pertaining to the exploitation of gas reserves in the Krishna-Godavari basin by Mukesh Ambani's company, which has allegedly siphoned off gas belonging to ONGC in the same basin and has preferred to keep the gas in the earth to await a gas price hike. The UPA government offered to increase it from $2.4 a btu to $4.8, but had to keep it in abeyance due to the poll conduct rules.

This book should appeal to all those who are interested in following the direction in which "oligarchs" like Ambani are taking control of the country's vital natural resources. It will also be of great interest to journalists since the book establishes a new standard in investigative journalism.

A great book. Reveals a lot of stuff about our polity and its nexus with capitalists. How things are being 'set', how people are being 'accommodated' - these are some of the questions one can answer with more authority once (s)he has read this. Must read for someone who has even an iota of interest in country affairs.

The book is very compelling to read. I have completed first three chapters. I felt like all our Indian consumer's lifestyle is effected by the Ambani siblings war.
The content of the book is very detailed. We can see the journalism passion in author's writing. Must read if one is interested to know the Indian political facts which are not regular in newspapers.

A beautiful and authentic document to describe the plunder of the natural resources of our country to facilitate the corporates and their agenda. It is a continuous process irrespective of the governments in power. Every government has backed the industry and not the common man in the groun who voted them to power.

An amazing work of research on contemporary corporate history. A must read for anyone who seeks a better understanding of the politico economic realities of the day. What makes the work noteworthy is the incorporation of diverse opinions and the sheer depth of information.
