The author seems to be biased on China which is evident from the exaggerated claims on China's importance. Sure China will one day become the largest economy in the world, but, the role of India in that changed world seemed to have been belittled. China's economic liberalization started 35 years (early 1970s)ago and India's started 15 years (early 1990s)ago - hence China has a 20 year lead over India.
In the long run, the Indian model is going to be more sustainable as it is democratic based vs. autocratic Chinese approach
Author seems to be very biased on the narration of the facts. Everything seemed to be glorified and it becomes less useful if the facts are tainted so much for the common public.
It appears more as author's wishful thinking than a commentary on reality.
Having said these, I still would like to commend Mr. Rai on writing on this topic that is much on strategically, geo-politically, socially important part of the world.
It is a very informative book - with good practical advises. Being an abridged version and being an audio there are certain illustrations, it is very difficult to imagine. Overall, it is a very practical book that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
