    1. In this auto-biography Jug takes you through his work life, from the time he started as a correspondent for the Junior Statesman(JS) to being in charge for the edit page of TOI, (arguably) one of the largest selling daily in India. As you would expect from a veteran journalist, he has plenty of stories to tell and being Jug, they have to be funny. As Jug takes you through the highlights in his career, you see the transformation of India journalism from that of elitist big brother to that of pand [...]

    2. One star out of the three I have given to this book is purely for the last chapter "A career of pissing people off." I would however like to disagree with him on a certain point. In his book Jug Suraiya talks about how Times of India didn't have and good story to cover for a while, how nothing significant was happening in the country around that time. He should not attempt to justify bad journalism on his part by blaming the lack of stories since, TOI doesn't care about covering or reporting rur [...]

    3. I would not say it was an interesting book to graduate, however I must appreciate the fact that author confessed the same in the first section named 'Statutory warning'. Author suggested to not to read it at one sitting. My word of advice is to do the opposite. I only liked two chapters from entire book. Read only if you can get this book for free.

    4. My first experience with Jug Suraiya came when I was in the seventh grade, nonchalantly flipping through the newspaper. And what a surprise it was - newspapers had funny columns? This piece of literature is no Booker Prize winner, however, it is what it set out to be - entertaining.

    5. A very well written book. Some of these have appeared in print earlier as a part of the "Jugular Vein" column and some others are new writings. This is a book you must read if you want to understand the Indian dailies better. i thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.

    6. Titillating read. Jug Suraiya keeps it short and funny. If you enjoy reading his columns then I'm pretty sure you'll like this.

    7. For those who've regularly read Jug's columns, the third edits, the wit and cynicism, it is refreshing to know the sensitive, politically aware human being married to Bunny and adopted by Brindle.
