Title: My Second Innings
Author: Shanti Bhushan
Publisher: Rupa Publishers
Publishing Date: 10th November 2018
My Rating: 3.5 stars
After his first biography ‘Courting Destiny’, the author has come up with his second book ‘My second Innings’, talking about the events which happened after his first memoir was published.
In this second memoir, the author discusses his political views, country’s law and order, personal experiences, and his life in general. It was satisfying to read his prospect towards the cases mentioned in the book and how he put forth his strong views against corruption in the Judiciary and in public notwithstanding his growing age.
The book includes eighteen chapters, all independent in itself. I too read a few chapters first which piqued my interest like the case of Kamakhya temple and the formation of AAP. And the other topics that were interesting to read were Anna Andolan, the battle against judicial corruption, Sanjay Dutt trial and the patent case of Novartis.
I had a great time reading this memoir. It has been written straight to the point and with clear thought expressions thus avoiding unnecessary overstatements.
My Second Innings is a convincing read. Though I’m afraid if it is better than the first book or not. The readers with a legal background will surely enjoy this book.
