This is a well written book written in a very intellectual way. It addresses the burning issue of taqleed i.e. following an imam. It deals with reasoning for following an imam and answers all objections and queries on the topic. A really well written book with any abusive arguments for the people with different concepts.

A must read to understand a vital issue.
