The author has translated this literature from the original language, Sanskrit. The author has also given the meanings of the verses. In the introduction, the author has written the background during which the Upanishads were written. The author has told us the social structure of India during that time and also the history and chronology.

Upanishads are one of the sacred scripture of Hinduism. Upanishads is a treasure of spiritual philosophy. In the Upanishads, it is written about the creation of the universe. It is clearly mentioned how the source of all life or God created this universe. The author also writes about how the Upanishads speak about the way through which man can reach God. There is also a small story in the book in which a father explains to his son that how everything in the creation is actually one with the creator.

This book is very interesting and worthy to be read. The author has done a good job in translating it. I found the philosophy of the book very nice. At the same time, there are passages in the book which are difficult to understand. But overall, the book is very good to read. And I can recommend this book to read by those who love to read.

Patrick Olivelle served as the Chair of the Department of Asian Studies at the University of Texas at Austin from 1994 to 2007, where he is Professor of Sanskrit and Indian Religions.

He has also prepared a critical edition of the Law Code of Manu (Mānava Dharmaśāstra). A new translation based on the critically edited text was published in Spring 2004 in the Oxford World's Classics series and the critical edition was published in 2005.

In the mid-1990's Olivelle worked on the late Vedic literature, producing an award-winning translation of the early Upaniṣads, as well as a scholar's edition of them.

His award-winning book on the āśrama system was published in 1993.
