This book tells, in chronology, about the Sages from Ashoka era onwards on what they wrote/ commented and how they influenced the understanding on Vedic knowledge. Stories on Sages Shankarachrya ( 509-477 BC),Ramanuja (1017-1137),Madhavacharya (1239-1319), Vallabhacharya ( 1478-1530 ), Chaitanya MahaPrabhu (1486-1534)keeps one intrigued and gives parallel details of medieval India which many of us dont know.
Its an interesting read before moving on to serious stuff or books like Bhagvad Geeta or Bhagavatam itself. Before I do so, want to read few more of this author's other books. He keeps things simple as much as possible.. good for beginners.
It browses some stuff like yagnavalkya at a mere mention while poring over srimad bhagavatam at great length. It tends to discredit sankara's mayavada using sources which are fairly circumstantial.
All in all while happy that someone took this pain I was disappointed with the treatment of it's subject
