I read this while traveling as a way to learn about various religions in the world and to introspect about their place in my life. As I hoped, Mr. Sadlier does a solid job articulating a sense of context and values system for many, many spiritual systems. That said, it felt overly exhaustive for what I was looking for, with many, many fringe spiritual systems included at the expense of a bit more depth on some of the more popular ones.
