The man of my dreams is from India and is a Hindu. I bought this as a reference to learn more about him, his culture, and his beliefs. The best investment - worth every penny! This book covers so many aspects and topics regarding Hinduism, that when I talk with my boyfriend about things that I've read, he's always pleasantly shocked to hear i read about it. I've been fascinated by how thorough and easy-to-read the book is. I would highly recommend this book to anyone!
