    1. This is an authentic and authoritative history of Chhatrapati Shivaji and chronicles the rise of the Maratha Power The book is a result of the great industry and scholarship of the author The language is simple , beautiful , flowing and quite captivating The painstaking efforts taken by the author to refer to authentic historical sources is evident in every page of the book.This is a definite read for all lovers of history.

    2. an objective history of shivaji ,unlike other historians mr sarkar has written this book without glorifying shivajiny events in the life of shivaji like killing of afzal khan,slaying shaista khan s men in pune ,or shivaji s escape from agra have not been stressed or given importance like other authors.overall this book does not appease hardcore rightists who want a glorified,and deitified history of shivaji

    3. A nice read, comparatively balanced, but still if you are looking for balanced history based on factual proofs, you can go for Setumadhavrao Pagadi.

    4. A very good book Written dispassionately, supported by proofs wherever necessary, simple flow as well as precision are the key advantages of this book.
