"A compendious survey of major Hindu goddesses . . . The kind of book that one can readily recommend to students for clear, reliable information and reasonable commentary on the goddesses it examines." -- Glenn Yocum, Religious Studies Review
"Kinsley has done a remarkable job in assembling an entire pantheon of Hindu goddesses in one delightful volume . . . . Mandatory reading for all scholars and students interested in South Asian religion, comparative mythology, or models of the feminine in sacred literature." -- Vasudha Narayan, Journal of Asian Studies
