Swami Vivekananda S Own Speeches And Writings As Well As Accounts Left By His Disciples Are Many, But A Comprehensive, Objective And Critical Study By A Non-Devotee Is Not Extant. This Book Is An Endeavour To Supply The Need. Not Only Does It Bring Out His Superb Powers And Achievements But It Also Discusses A Few Oddities Like His Defence Of Animal Sacrifice And Indifference To Widow Remarriage. In More Than Forty Chapters The Book Covers The Life, PersoČNality, Ideas, Social Service And The Hitherto Unexplored Aspects Of The Poetry And Prose Of This Intellectual Giant.

Its a good book but here more than philosophy life has given preference. Bit disappointed as I was expecting more Philosophy.
