Wendy Doniger on The Difficulty of Being Good

'The book is a wonderful combination of the scholarly and the personal, the academic and the meditative. The basic plan works beautifully, building a rich mix of his very, very careful and detailed reading of the text, his other wide reading, and his life in business; an extraordinary blend. I found the use of evolutionary biology and the Prisoner's Dilemma to explain the pragmatism of the Mahabharata absolutely brilliant.'

- Wendy Doniger, Mircea Eliade Professor of the History of Religions, University of Chicago
