A prolific writer, Mihir Bose is one of the best-known sports commentators in England. Bose, who was the BBC's sports editor, wrote extensively for The Daily Telegraph and the Sunday Times. An award-winning author and journalist, he has written over thirty books on sports, political history and cinema. He has gone back to football again and again to recover many untold stories of the game. Loughborough University awarded him an Honorary Doctorate for outstanding contribution to journalism and the promotion of equality. He now writes for the Financial Times and London Evening Standard and the Sunday Times, and broadcasts for a wide range of outlets including the BCC, Sky and ITV.

"Mihir Bose's football writings are innovative, combining knowledge of the game with forensic analysis of the business of football", said Hugh Pym of British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).

Game Changer is a gripping account of the craze, politics and business around the English Premier League, and also about India's missed opportunity to emerge as a major footballing side in the world.

The writer has gone deep into the issues facing English football, street violence, corruption and racism. Former England football manager Roy Hodgsone said that Mihir is one of Britain's most respected sports journalists. In particular, his writing about football is insightful and knowledgeable.

Game Changer is a must read for every football lover and students of politics surrounding to the sports. First published in the UK, this is a special Indian edition. The book is available at Flipkart and Amazon.

Palimpsest entered the Indian publishing scene in 2012 promising to do things differently. It took note of the tectonic shifts in culture, inside man’s life and writing brought about by relentless waves of new technology. The new reading milieu of the young urbanite, we knew, has more expectations from us. Within the publishing world the silos were being razed, setting the field for an exciting game. We responded knowing things would never be the same again. Contemporary, with the wind, and still – books for us meant memories of runes of “an ancient palimpsest on which layer upon layer of thought and reverie had been inscribed, and yet no succeeding layers had completely hidden what had been written previously.”  So we were – pulled by the future and the past our guiding beacon.
