Good historical overview, but Waddell's prose drips with ethnocentric contempt and judgement, which is extraordinarily inappropriate, off-putting, gross and downright disgusting. His contempt for Eastern religion is not even REMOTELY disguised or euphemized. An unpleasant, if necessary, and dated account.
