Huston Smith is widely regarded as one of the most influential writers in the field of religious studies.

Enjoy!

Nice, that can probably be arranged. I did happen across an old Xvid (3.38gb) copy of it on PTP, but unfortunately it was unseeded. There are also mp3 copies of the series floating around as well.
