Read it in , was inspirational, and is the basis of many of my thoughts and ideals. Probably the best book written on Vivekananda.
The ideas and life of Vivekananda are presented in a simple not simpler and clear way. Though written by a foreign author, it has very clear usage of simple words not complicated word structure in an effective way. Mar 15, Pranav rated it really liked it.
