Read Dr. Pattanaik's few books earlier and this one too is one of his best writings. The new channel Life Ok is airing a serial on Lord Shiva " MAHADEV" and the producers give due credits to Dr Pattanaik's writings for being the inspiration of the serial. I am neither a Shiva sadhika nor an expert in mythology but reading this great book was a soothing experience. Shiva's various aspects as Kaal Bhairav, Sundareshwar, Kashi Vishwanath, Gore Bhairav have been wonderfully ellaborated in different chapters leaving the readers spell bound and surrendered before Mahadev. Shiva's Nivratti marg as compared to Narayan's Pravritti Marg has been justified aptly leaving it to the readers to decide which is the greatest of both. --Geetha Sunil Pillai Dec 19, 2011
A really must read for everybody who wants to understand Hindu mythology or would like to classify it as erratic and out of world stories of Gods who are absent at the time of need. While i have always understood spirituality and dismissed mythology as interesting stories for kids. I find these should be the best piece of literature. Such abstract concepts are so beautifully laden that they demonstrate abstract concepts, through mundane materialistic things. Book is good but concepts concepts could be better categorized to give clearer picture --Priyanka Srivastav Apr 16, 2012 --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

This book clears the misconceptions about what Shiva is all about. Today it is easier to concentrate on the spirit of Lord Shiva, that it was earlier. Earlier it was a search for the concrete form.
This time his focus is on this hermit who is totally ditached from society yet gradually becomes a part of it with the help of his wife.
Books on Shiva always impressed me and overall the metaphors used for his wife and children are indeed very very impressive.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has read the other two of the trilogy or whoever is interested in knowing the deep metaphors about this hermit god.
A must for Shiva fans!
While this prolougue is intriguing, authors fails to deliver in the pages that follow. He takes isolated mythological stories and tries to uncover spiritual meaning in them. The meanings given are more of an individuals view. The books lacks consistency of thought and is more like jumbled representation of stories. Every page has picture ( some are really outrageous )on one side and text on the other without adequate relation between the two.
It's more of a commercial product than scholarly. Purchase if you want to read a few stories and undigested thoughts.
But overall a very good read...Many thanks to Devdutt Patnaik for deciphering the misundertood concepts for a layman like us
