I found this book very didactic

Wonderful, very concise-"tops"-especially if you follow a Vaishnava path.If you have trouble understanding the translations of Hindu religious and philosophical works on Vaisnava perspective, this is a good choice. For devotees of Krishna or Vishnu, this is also a very satisfying book.

Instructive

For those interested in Hinduism this is a very informative book. It details the hierarchy of the Hindu Deities and allows the listener to understand the reason for the Gods names etc.

Great resource!

What you learn from this book on Vedic Culture is absolutely amazing! It is well written and I haven't even finished the book, but the information is just so interesting, captivating, engaging. A really great purchase and I am very pleased.

Any additional comments?

Attractive, good information. Easy to grasp and understand, some of the basic beliefs and practices. Very helpful if you're making your first visit to a Hindu Temple. Wish I'd had it before I made mine. Thanks to the Author.

Painful to listen too

This book may be an adequate guide to Hinduism however I was unable to finish it due to the narrators inability to pronounce many of the key words including some of the gods, places in India and key words such as Sadhus. For me, his slowing down and struggling over multiple words really affected the flow and after an hour of trying had to abandon this book. V poor show audible.

Unlistenable

Pronunciations make this unlistenable. The narrator sounds like he is reading most of these words for the first time and fumbles, guesses, or butchers his way though them, sometimes even missing out entire letters. There are probably hundreds of narrators fluent in one South Asian language that could have done a better job. The high rating this has cannot be for the audiobook.

The narrator ruined this book!!

im sure the book has great content, but whoever this narrator is needs to be locked up for ruining it with his ultra English pronunciation of Sanskrit words. it must be pronounced as it ought to be not bastardise it. Returning this book and going to buy the real thing so I can read it myself.

This is a well-researched book

Any additional comments?

This is a well-researched book that the author has written with much passion. The author writes in a clear easy to read style. However, there are too many ideas and facts in this book for me to give an adequate review. I feel that this is a worthwhile book because Hinduism is a major religion that most of us know little about.

Excellent.

Like learning about Hinduism. Simple explanations and gives a lot of detail though. It delves into how Hinduism was brought to the West, and how Hinduism views other religions. The historical and cultural connections to Zoroastrianism were fascinating.

This book contains detailed information

Any additional comments?

many scholars and practitioners believe that Hinduism is not a religion at all – it is a way of life, as Hinduism explains the purpose of human life, what you should and shouldn’t do, how you should behave with others, and how you should carry out your duties and responsibilities.Hinduism believes that God is within us, and everywhere in the universe.

Too many mispronounced words.

Poor prononciation is a big problem in a book meant to teach beginners. Hindu's rhymes with shoes not plus.
