I was looking for a medium to heavily detailed study on the ancient education system of India, which I did not find in this book. This book is oversimplified, often with vague and highly generalised statements. If you're looking for a quick 1-day read, this is a good place to start.
Great book which provides a historical perspective of India's education system, which few Indian's seem to understand or appreciate for multiple internal and external reasons. A must read to gain perspective of India's ancient education strengths and how it was eroded systematically over time.
