From the Jacket:

Prof. P. Sankaranarayanan was a student of Dr. Radhakrishnan at the Madras Presidency College and later served as a Lecturer and Professor in various Colleges; Palghat, Mangalore, Tellicherry, Kumbakonam, the Madras Presidency College and Government Arts College.

After retirement from Government Service he became the Head of the Department of Philosophy, Vivekananda College, Madras, and was a Professor at the Bhavan's College in Bombay. Wherever it was, he was a respected teacher, beloved of his students and his colleagues. In Bombay he endeared himself to Kulapati Munshi and the other workers there and became their friend, philosopher and guide.

He was a devout Asthika and follower of the Vaidika Dharma and a great devotee of His Holiness Jagadguri Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati, the Paramachary of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetha. He has translated the discourses of the Acharya into English and made them available to a large readership. He also rendered into English the Sanskrit Commentary of the late Sri Chandrasekhara Bharati Mahaswamigal, on Sankara's Viveka Chunamani, and Sankara's commentary on Sri Vishnu Sahasranama Stotra, both published by the Bhavan.

This book What is Advaita? has been written in simple style with clarity and precision and can be understood even by the layman.
