This book is one of the first to introduce newcomers to Sikhism's meanings, beliefs, practices, rituals, and festivals. Eleanor Nesbitt highlights the key threads in the fascinating history, from the Gurus and the development of the Sikh appearance, to martyrdom and militarization in the 17th and 18th centuries, and the diaspora. She also examines the recent proliferation of Sikh lifestyles in today's news and entertainment media. This book is an essential guide to increasing understanding of the Sikh religion and culture.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Get a different narrator. She sounds like the lovechild of a mediocre tour guide and a bad screenreader. She butchers many of the non-English words and even pronounces English strangely at times.
What did you like best about this story?
The story was excellent.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susan McIneary?
Literally anyone who wasn't obviously sight-reading every foreign word.
What character would you cut from Sikhism?
Any additional comments?
The story was excellent. I really, really tried to listen to this. But once I realized she wasn't even pronouncing the foreign words correctly, it was just too hard to listen to.
