The spacing of the letters is such that some words are pulled apart, in others the letters are on top of each other. The map is fuzzy and not clear
The book talks about Harappan and Aryan civilizations, almost concurrently, and on one ocassion he got confused between them.
It is organized into 14 two-page, thematic spreads that follow a general chronological progression (from the Harrappan civilizations through the Aryan conquest, Mauryan Age, and and the rise of Buddhism) but have a way-of-life emphasis. The packaging, full of drawings, artifacts, and photographs of people and places, is very well done, and the text is clear.
The only drawback is that the presentation is rather dry and textbook-like. However, it is still a very good introduction to an area that is rarely covered by books of this level.
