    I read this book....however you wont find much socalled secrets. It is not the norm in the intelligence agencies that a person would know much beyond his professional duty. The person who tried to do so found to be a American mole. However, Maj Gen Singh pointed out many inefficiencies in India's security set up. You wont get a good opinion about functioning of R&AW and intelligence agencies as a whole. It looks like a bunch of boreaucrats working without any purpose; spending most of the time and money (unaudited) on trivial things rather than anything important. Most interesting thing Singh has pointed is the rivalry between the agencies like R&AW, IB and MI; their reluctancy to share assets and information with each other leading to duplication of resources unnecessarily. The question will hammer in your mind after reading this book why they dont merge IB and R&AW and bring some sort of accountability in them.

    Same thing with US intel agencies, and when Jamie Gorelick was Deputy Attorney-General prior to the WTC attacks in 2001, she had a policy of keeping those agencies from cooperating.
