Don't bother with this book. All you will get from it are childish interpretations of old ideas. Just because an idea from a faraway era resembles some modern empirically established fact does not mean that that ancient idea has any connection at all to the currently accepted fact. All this book does is try to patronize minorities after ripping them off (it is quite overpriced for the kind of book it is).
Yes, I believe that non european peoples may have had sophisticated intellectual traditions at times in their history, however, this book is not the way to learn about them.
It is a misleading book that you will be better off not reading.
