    What a great beginners guide to India: after 3 visits there this book still fascinated, and taught, me things! The number of gods and goddesses in this huge country are enormous and the authors little thumbnail sketches of some of the main ones are helpful. I laughed at some of the descriptions and the light, non serious, almost tongue-in-cheek pieces that make it easy to absorb the info ... a must-read for all those going to India
