A really disappointing introduction to India & it's philosophy,
This review is from: Indian Philosophy: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (Paperback)
I had hoped with this book to have a high level brief introduction to Indian Philosophy prior to a visit. I found the book very unsatisfactory from this point of view - in fact I gave up half way through having lost the plot - not the norm. To my mind the author did not define her target audience & associated objective of the book and hence I suspect many will find it a disappointment. My advice is if like me you want a high level introduction to understand the way of life and beliefs then this is not for you.
