Indian philosophy is a very complex subject with a lot of subtle distinctions and technical language. It is hard to follow no matter how it is approached, but Dasgupta' begin-at-the-beginning approach at least provides some context. However it is not easy going, given the nature of the subject and the amount of area covered. This isn't a book for bathroom reading, but it will provide the interested reader with a general background on the subject.
