More about History than the actual beliefs

Overall I still found it very informative, to how Sikhism became what it is today, but the book was more oriented towards the history of Sikhism than I had expected. I was originally looking to find what the beliefs and practices of Sikhism were, which this partially achieved.

Great Overview of Sikh History 👳

Sikhism has such a lack of publicity, but it's such a wonderful & fascinating religion!

I learned a lot about Sikhism - especially the history - from this audiobook. I liked the scholarly tone. I also appreciated that there were plenty of excerpts from Sikh sacred texts.

Inaccurate and flawed

Dr Andrea dime lane’s interpretation is very inaccurate and flawed on many subjects there are many better books to understand basic Sikh fundamentals. Better still would be to visit the basics of sikhi YouTube channel.
