Book reviews aren’t easy and for a guy who reads at a glacial pace it’s doubly hard. Thankfully UNSUNG by Anita Pratap and Mahesh Bhat has some incredibly captivating images that kept me engrossed, flipping page after page taking in each of the richly textured black & white images.
What I found curious was that the images nudged me on to read the accompanying text. Ms. Pratap’s easy writing style makes it an enjoyable read as she narrates each of the nine stories about average Indian citizens doing some great things for society with very little resources. This book is simply inspirational and a must-read for all.
Whoever designed this book must also be applauded. The pacing of the images, the right pull-quotes in the right places and the easy-to-read font make this book something extra-ordinary.
