The selection of faiths discussed seems peculiar. A now fairly obscure para-Christian wedding cult gets an entry, but Catholicism doesn't. Ba'hai is covered, but not Taoism - despite being referenced. Some of the description of Wicca is of questionable veracity, but again, the author doesn't seem to be on a crusade to demonize the pagans, so I can tolerate incompleteness or inaccuracy in a free book.
If you're a Christian and always will be, but want a short book to help you distinguish the traditions Christian Scientists from Seventh Day Adventists, and Muslims from Sikhs, this book is a worthy starting point.
