    Thanks for informing me that you have downloaded the E Book, titled, A Glimpse into the history of the Sikhs and, that you will write a Review after going through it thoroughly.
    A principled review shall be much appreciated.

    Well I have finished the book!

    Its a very good book, with a minimum of comments, it concentrates on the facts as available. I found it steered away from any information that is widely quoted in sakhis but stands against Bani, multiple wives, etc etc, and concentrated on what is known to be within Bani, thus most of the stories seem possible and the superstitious content is kept to a minimum, implying, rightly in my view, that true wisdom comes from learning, and that the Gurus were highly perceptive, rather than magicians

    Thanks for taking time off from your busy life, for going through the book, 'A Glimpse into the History of the Sikhs' and writing a short but fair Review.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
