Great book, most authentic details

Many untold facts on Swamiji's life and details which are rare to find

Good book.

We know swami Vivekananda as a saint and a philosopher, but by reading this book I came to know and how he struggled in his life how he spent his days. It's a good book to know his life that we can't imagine. Friends we can't find any proverb of Swamiji, except his personal life.

For those interested in the life of the great man...

This book gave a peek into so many different aspects of the great man. His penchant for cooking, the foodie that he was, the description of his mother, the history of his family and the detailed description of the last part was absolutely unknown to me. I loved the book. I agree the editing could ha… (View complete review)

The monk who 'soul'd his people

Sankar's well researched and well written book chronicles the extra-ordinary life of Swami vivekananda,the monk who mesmerised the whole world with his wonderful oratory and wisdom and gave wings to the indian philosophy. lesser known aspects of vivekananda's life, like his obsession with chain smoking, his culinary interests and his tryst with malodies have been detailed in length in this biography.Sankar brings into light vivekananda's intense attachment with his mother. Author depends both on primary and secondary data to write this scholarly work of a life. A must read for all who are inte

Not upto the hyped experiences provided.

First of all the book gives us a different side of the great swami. One who hasn't read any other books or doesn't have any background of who swami is would be misguided by this book verbally.
The book shows the struggle of the great sage, his cons, his non-extraordinary actions and day to day habits. It doesnt enlighten us with the great activites the gems that swami has contributed. I guess the author delibrately left out the main things to portray other side of swami.

Uninteresting Facts

The book gives information about Vivekananda's family more than him...

It gives so much details of his family that is not relevant to a reader who wants to know what inspired and formed his ideology.

I could never complete the book. Just read half of it and gave up.....

Not Really About the Incidents that turned the Man to a Monk

I was under the impression that it would have the life stories of Swami Vivekananda and explain the underlying tenets of his philosophy. Quite contrary to my expectations it is more about his life, family and background.

Indeed the Book is really mesmersing!! and all the above readers are nodding the head for it

One thing to say about this book is probably Mr Sankar had done commendable job researching life of swami Vivekananda and projected in such a way so that, this book gets sold in lofty number. The author has very jealously presented him (lion which roared and its long and loud roar was heard by western people)' as nothing was so great about him with few gathered facts. I bow to the great skill of the author in MESMERISING the readers. Sad to have such authors, No wonder its India....
