If there is anyone who can write a book on Lata Mangeshkar, it is Raju Bharatan.He has been associated with hindi film music for over four decades now.This book gives us an insight on Lata's aura, charisma, her struggle and also little known facts, dispute with Rafi.Read for yourself how different music directors rate her. This is a no-holds-barred, no-punches-pulled account of the most unputdownable performer in the world. A 'must-buy' for all hindi film music lovers.

Format: Hardcover
I have read the "authorized biography" by Harish Bhimani and had heard that Bharatan's version is a little scandalous. Bharatan's version comes across as being a little more blunt of course, but Lata doesn't really come out in a negative light in the book in my opinion. Bharatan is definitely an expert on Lata's career, and this book is more of a filmography than a biography in many aspects, as compared to the Bhimani book. Bharatan tends to repeat many incidents and facts over and over throughout the book, which sometimes makes the narrative seem a little slow. However, this is still a good read, and certainly a good collector's item for Lata's fans for her songs through 1994 or so.
