Recommends it for: anyone interested in reading more about India, Pakistan, Hinduism and Islam
I really enjoyed this book. It has a lot of information about India and Pakistan - two countries which I don't know very much about. Historically, the information is important and should be read by people of all nations. The essays included in this book are remarkable - profound thoughts and ideas from learned men, which were not covered in any of the world history classes I took in high school or college.

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I have.

Good compilation of traditions, stronger logic could have been given in favor of traditions with little more efforts.
