4.0 out of 5 stars A good book with some opinion thrown in there, too... 31 July 2013
By Robert D. Herrick II - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book about the Vedas. There is a lot of good information and plenty of quotes to back up the points that the author is making. I felt that the point does get across overall. There are, however, a few forays into what the author interprets the Vedas to mean. For the most part, this doesn't detract from the message. In fact, I appreciated some of the more modern interpretations. I just felt that maybe somebody else wouldn't take the interpretation quite as well as I did. It's a good book and a good introduction to the Vedic literature.

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst book I have ever read on Vedic philosophy 25 July 2015
By Ozan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The worst book I have ever read on Vedic philosophy. The answers it gives are fundamentalist, very shallow and simplistic. For instance, why do we exist? The answer given in the book is: Because There is a lord, Krishna, if there were no one else in this world, there wouldn't be any meaning because there would be no human to overlord. Really? And this is just one example. The book is full of nonsense like this. I know the rich Vedic philosophy has much more meaningful answers than those. Maybe the author should take a look at the writings of Shankara (I know he doesn't like Shankara because, you know, fundamentalism) or Yoga Vasistha.

Waste of money.
