The book is a wealth of knowledge, but the ultimate pramana or believable story that is told is from the Bhagavata Purana or the Srimad Bhagavatam. So, sometimes the stories are different in different Puranas. Otherwise, it is worthwhile edition to
the vast knowledge of the Puranas.
Sometimes the names are different from one Purana to the next, which causes a little confusion. For example, sometimes they use the word Sakra for Indra.
Otherwise, it is a good and valuable work to have in one's Vedic library.
Thank you for the rare and superb edition.
