Obsessive categorization

Book ends up losing all its meaning as the author shows its obsession with names and categories . I had to literally stop it as it killed the underlying message by inserting her own comments after each lines. Historical knowledge in terms of names and date is complete and book should be used for reference but not to get into deeper aspect of Upanishads.

Long and hard work

Was hoping to get a taste of the upanishads, but instead this book seems to be circling endlessly around the actual writings, never really saying much. But then, I didn't have the patience to finish this book and gave up on it half way.
