    1. Detailed analysis of facts - archaeological and literary - and conclusion drawn. Good book for anyone researching into the prehistory of the Indian subcontinent.


    2. It has some cool references to Ayurveda which I found interesting. It basically states the origins of human history did not stem from the western world. The ancients were a lot more sophisticated than modern western culture gives them credit for. But anyone with a lick of education already knows that. Nevertheless, studying about Ayurveda, it is always enjoyable to read about the history of Ayurveda.


    3. This book is about the cultural history of India - the Rig Vedas, some archeology, a refutation of the Indo-European invasion (come to think, India is a hard place to get to, especially with chariots).This is all well and good, but the part I don't get at all is this (leafy?) drink called "soma" which seems to have made an essential contribution to their culture. What is this stuff? The gurus got whacked on it, and thus perhaps we have all the existential insightfulness which we gain from ancien [...]


    4. I enjoyed reading this book from start to finish - the authors put forth 17 arguments (some of them convincing, some of them a stretch) to refute the Aryan invasion theory of the Indian civilization. I had never truly accepted the Aryan invasion theory despite a lack of any others, so for me this book was a happy validation. I also enjoyed the authors' theory about India being the cradle of civilization. But beyond the two theories, what the book does well is provide an in-depth look at some of [...]


    5. After reading Gods, Sages & Kings (also of one of the authors, Frawley) this book reads too light. Reading them the other way around would be best. Anyway, a more popular (less scholastic) presentation of the real antiquity of the Vedic civilization. The astronomic and maritime information the authors find in the Vedas clearly debunks the entrenched idea of the Arian invasion of the Indian subcontinent by a pastoral people. So who were the Arians?


    6. The authors are trying to prove that Aryan Invasion theory is not exactly right. Aryans have been an integral part of India from the starting of civilizations in India and are contemporary to Indus Valley civilization ( He likes to call it Vedic Indus Valley civilization).


    7. Very good and easy to read. The thesis that India rather than Sumeria was the origin of the PIE culture is an interesting one. I do not know whether this argument gets much scholarly credence, but the book makes it sound like it should?
