Fascinating discussion on the rise of India and China and the way the two countries are intertwined with America. I'm not a student. I'm just curious about international relations and I found it
written where I could understand and form an opinion.
The book is quite good discussing historical perspectives, current opportunities and threats, etc. it does a good job of explaining the current situation in India and China as well as perceptions within those countries. The solutions offered are rather simplistic - "cooperate", "collaborate", "patiently nudge", "quiet dialogue" etc. I do not think it is possible to gently nudge powerful countries. This may work with smaller countries.
Narration is mediocre. It appears like the narrated hadn't read the book before and had a rather surprised tone in many sections as she read it. She also got most of the pronunciation of difficult Indian and Chinese names woefully wrong. As a narrator, I'd assume she would have looked this up prior to reading.
Overall it is a good book to understand the current situation and opportunities, but rather weak when it comes to actual solutions.
