Dad gave me this book as my reward for finishing Grinnell College with a religion major. His choice of Kaufmann was apt as I very much liked Kaufmann at the time, both as a translator of Nietzsche and as a philosopher. His choice of this particular book by Kaufmann was less happy because this is basically a much-illustrated coffee table book. The author does know his stuff about subcontinental religions however.
