This little book provides a succinct and well-written introduction to Sikhism. It covers history, teachings, practices and organisation of Sikhs and their religion in a style suitable for both complete novices and those who are familiar with the basics. I would recommend it to anyone beginning to study this area whether at school or university, for general interest or to learn more about their own background. Written by a talented lecturer and well respected member of the Sikh community in Britain this is definitely worth buying.

It is very brief and concise. Enough to know about the basics or rather get an idea of the other religion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Concise yet most informative! 4 Nov 2009
Great insight into what you need to know about Sikhism. It is easy to read and follow and you can dip into it easily. Pocket sized means that you can easily take it with you. Really recommend this read if you just want to gain a good understanding of how Sikhism was founded and the prinicples upon which it operates.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great place to start 22 Feb 2014
A great read for anyone and everyone. It allows you to "dip your toe in", so to speak. It has plenty of information so that you can get a basic understanding of Sikhism. It's all unbiased and not tainted by political beliefs.

It's simple, but not patronising, it has enough for you to feel like you can move on and read more about the topic should you wish
