From the Jacket:

In the eighth century, a young sanyasi became ancient India's greatest philosopher and theologian. Adi Sankaracharya was the leading exponent of Advaita Vedanta, a philosophy that has influenced thinkers till today.

In a short life of just thirty two years, Adi Sankaracharya left an indelible mark on Hindu thought and religion. At a time when Hinduism was on a decline, he placed it once again on firm spiritual foundations. Beginning from Kerala he travelled ceaselessly across the Indian subcontinent, becoming a spiritual unity force of the land. He also established the monastic order of the Sankaracharya mathas.

This is the fascinating story of a child prodigy, brilliant debator, beloved teacher, revolutionary thinker and social reformer.
