Who Wrote My Destiny: Authorised Biography of Sushilkumar Shinde

"Who Wrote My Destiny: Authorised Biography of Sushilkumar Shinde" is a completely useless book, if you are looking for a political book.

This book is like a self-help book with one sentence about Sushil Kumar Shinde in each page. Even when it is mentioned about the political life, the chronology, year and many other basic details are not at all mentioned, and I could not get any information.

For example, when they mentioned about contesting in elections, it is mentioned that, he was considered for elections in 1971. But, he could not get the seat. Then, again, he was considered in 1972, still did not get it. After that, when the sitting MLA died in 1973, he got the chance. I was unable to understand, how can he be considered continuously three times in three years. Were there two bye-elections or was it something else? Later, I came to know (from different source) that, in 1971, it was Parliament Elections, and in 1972, it was Assembly election. If they don't mention even basic things about politics, what is the use of writing a book about a politician?

If you are a person who enjoy reading full of praises, then you can read this. Otherwise, it is complete time waste.
