Review quote

"The author not only loves his field, he obviously cares very much that students have access to this information in a way conducive to their learning the material. The book is eminently 'teachable' and 'learnable'...There's nothing else like Asian Philosophies on the market, and it's the book 'anyone who is anyone' recommends..." -- E.R. Klein, Flagler College
