Read the excerpt:
The year is 340 BC. A hunted, haunted Brahmin youth vows revenge for the gruesome murder of his beloved father. Cold, calculating, cruel and armed with a complete absence of accepted morals, he becomes the most powerful political strategist in Bharat and succeeds in uniting a ragged country against the invasion of the army of that demigod, Alexander the Great.
Pitting the weak edges of both forces against each other, he pulls off a wicked and astonishing victory and succeeds in installing Chandragupta on the throne of the mighty Mauryan empire.
History knows him as the brilliant strategist Chanakya. Read more.

“‘Chanakya’s Chant’ – An intelligent man’s guide to governance and foreign policy!” accessible from: http://www.voxindica.net/2011/08/ashwin-sanghis-chanakyas-chant-review.html
The book is white bread of literary canon. It didn’t make me want to hurt myself or others.
