This book underscores that the Gita is not for abandoning active life but for reconstructing it.
The book focuses particularly on the modern man. It does not deal with an imaginary or an ideal situation but with man's real life. It recognizes that man is caught up in a whirlpool of conflicting values and goals and tries to resolve and reconcile them. The book explores various dimensions of man's life-as an individual, as a family member, as a social being and as a businessman as well.
The book selects only a few chapters and verses and brings out the principal teachings of the Gita which are of direct relevance in the context of contemporary modern life.
The book caters well to the scientific temperament of the reader. It is definitely not a religious dose but a logical argument based on cause and effect, analysis of the important teachings of the Gita.
