1. First of Original book. No xerox copy provided by the seller. as there is a hologram at the top of the title page & also a Amazon Prime product.
2. Dimension of the book is small. You can easily carry it to any place. But don't go with it's size. it is a world of information about the past of India.
3. Page are good in quality. No. of Pages 848 main topics & 32 pg. (content, title page etc.).
4. Appendices at the back are really good for quick revision before exam.
5. Topics are well arranged.
#But one think of this book I'll never accept that is it's language and it's criticisms about the work of our great revolutionary leaders. One cannot use the word "Militant Nationalism" to define the work of our great leaders. It hurts the sentiment of crores of Indian. Except this the book is awesome. Go for it guys and get ready for your exams. Thanks Amazon.
Now come to the packing, it was worst. Many pages were folded and some came out from the book. I did not get any bill in the box. This is the first time I have faced this kind of service from Amazon. Amazon needs to upgrade its service.
1. Content of this book took from various history author sources like bipin Chandra,Grover.. But content is arranged specifically for upsc preparation.
2. Most of us likes to make notes from books according to our taste.. this book has common format which makes little bit usefull in saving time for making notes. So, this is a book with common format for easy preparation.
3. To have deep insights and different perspectives on modern india.. This book is not sufficient. It can be supplemented by other author books.
Decision is upto you people.
1-Compact size.Looks good in the bookshelf and feels adorable in lap.
2-Font size is okay-okay,you can't complain text is too small to read.
3-cover is strong and shiny and doesn't disappoint as a paperback book.
1-Too much margin on the outer side of paper and less margin on the side of gluing makes it a little difficult to read,they should've done the margining vice versa.
2-Ink starts a little wearing off when you touch it but it's not going to disappear or ruin the content.
3-Paper and ink used for printing is of average quality.
Overall, if you have no problem in getting it bound with a hardcover and don't have a habit to interact with writing, it's a good product.
