Mr. Dixon's poor pronunciation would be bad enough, but is made worse by his lazy reading. To pick one example from scores, the name of Bihar's capital is PAT-NA, and not PAN-TA. How hard can it be to get that right?

Would you listen to India again? Why?
Yes, The book is full of interesting information
What other book might you compare India to and why?
None, I have not come across a single book that covers the broad range of topics from the past and the modern day India.
Which scene was your favorite?
The information related to how the British owed money to India at the time of India's indepedence
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
The author does display an anglo-saxon bias in his portrayal of Sonia Gandhi.
His portrayal of Rahul Gandhi is not balanced. He says following very positive things about Rahul Gandhi without supporting it with any information
"He’s not sentimental, he has a clinical mind."
"he was trying to restructure the calcified organization of the Congress party"
"Rahul Gandhi was up against a cascade of privilege and entitlement that reached to the heart of Indian politics at the centre and at state level". I would say this applies to Rahul as well.
