I bought this book from the authors website because I have read a couple of other books by him. I was looking for a book that would explain Hinduism in a logical & analytical manner without a focus on rituals. I wanted to get a glimpse of what Hinduism is and this book delivers it very well. It's not about the rituals but about mind management.
I love the writing style as it is simple & effective without getting too complicated. Don't let the cover fool you - the book is not just for kids; adults can read it too and I am sure that they will also learn something new. The author covers topics such as nature of self, nature of God (who knew!), goal of life, grace of God, importance of self-effort, importance of mind, practicing devotion daily, meditation and so much more.
If you are curious to learn about the true meaning or essence of Hinduism, buy this book!
