In vabishya puran(Future puran) it is told in kaliyug(Iron age),there will be a time where and when ignorant,fool and people full of lust will pretend to be all knowing and intillect and pretend to be guru...........this is same here.........this book has hundreds of mistakes and its way of elaboration and interpretations in respective topics are irrelivent........and I dont recomend it for any body to buy it. Thanks.
It is sad to see an entire book talking about Hinduism as being born of mythology. An appropriate title would be history, in which case a number of elements could be understood by the author correctly. He misses the elements right from the very beginning by calling it mythology.
