I bought this book for my World Religions class at college. It's an alright read. It has some pretty interesting points to consider.

Unless you're already interested in theoretical religion, or the different elements that make up a religion, this will probably be boring to you.

BUT if you DO like those things, you will definitely love this book!

I'm torn about it. I would've never chosen to read this book on my own -- but now that I have, I'm actually pretty glad I read it. It helped to expand my mind and that's definitely always good!

I needed this book for an online class over the summer and paid for expedited shipping to get this order. The book did not come within the time they told me I would receive the book so I emailed them. They took a while to get back to me, after I was half-way done with my class, and told me that they were just going to give me a refund for the book and that I would have to re-order the book to get it. So they completely screwed me over for my class, and just gave up trying to get the book to me. They clearly are disorganized and do not know how to do their job. I would not recommend buying anything from this company.
