    This book is a waste of time. The perspective of Vinod Rai seems biased. While eulogizing a leader of Kerala (when he was officer there in 1980's) it seems officers who take sides in party politics today will do the same when writing their memoirs.

    Nothing more than a big "LekhaJokha" of the top Lekhpal. Heavy on facts.

    Bakwaas book! Too much biased and self-righteousness

    Waise, some discussions about CAG powers and how scams happened may be interesting n useful. But book is very avg.

    I liked first chapter of his early service life, but it was way too short. Usi pe book likha hota to b sahi rehta

    Yes.. this book is good, Some ground-level info about working of IAS. It's also inspiring.

    agree with that part, most of other books focus on blaming the system only.

  • Vinod Rai talks like "Court Historian" of Bhartiya Jumla Party. Not only was CBI the caged parrot but Vinod Rai showed that even CAG could also creep to please the new political masters.
