Now, this 36-lecture series takes you deep into the life stories and legacies of these four iconic figures, revealing the core teachings, and thoughts of each, and shedding light on the historical processes that underlie their phenomenal, enduring impact.

Explicit and interesting
Loved that the book labelled what is likely factual and likely mythical for the sake of all comparisons and left the discussion neutral. Great discussion of the context of each Sage and on what grounds their reputation was built and the religions that formed around them without the untouchable hoo-hah in modern religious groups. Probably goes an extra few hours longer than it should but never boring.

A holy man to Hindus, a hero to Muslims, and a criminal to the British, Mohandas K. Gandhi was an inspiring figure of the 20th century, a man whose quest to live in accord with God’s highest truth led him to initiate massive campaigns against racism, violence, and colonialism.
One of the best autobiographies out there

Bad choice of narrator
Is there anything you would change about this book?
Pronunciation of Indian cities and language is awful, good book and storyline but robbed of authenticity by a very out of depth narrator.
