Reviewed in India on 1 January 2021
I'll be honest - I did enjoy reading the book initially. It seemed like a good mix of storytelling and touching upon the core subject it is based on - Dharma - and its many facets. However as I continued reading I was majorly disappointed with one thing - more than half the stories and extracts are from Amish's own fictional books - The Shiva trilogy and Ram Chandra series - which I've not read. The title of the book says "Decoding the epics for a meaningful life" - so I was obviously expecting references to Indian epics such as Ramayana, Mahabharata, and the like but those are limited to very few in the book and more focus has been given to Amish's own fictional stories and characters. Others may find it to be OK but for me, these fictional stories simply do not carry the depth and meaning as the actual Indian epics..
