The book lays out a brief history of the origins and major leaders of the faith, along with descriptions of traditions, values, and practices. The printed content is fairly straightforward, and readers who are interested in learning more can use the QR codes to access videos and learning activities. Visually, the book includes a nice balance of contemporary photography and traditional art, helping readers understand that Sikhism is a vibrant and current religion that spans a 500-year range. Peritextual matter, such as sidebars, and a glossary provide supplemental information.
