XXV + 558 p. The rather voluminous book of Klaus G. Witz is not really a general introduction to the Upanishads; rather it attempts to familiarize the reader, in considerable depth, with some of the central teachings of the five oldest Upanishads. Its method is quoting and analysing focal teachings, traditionally known as vidyās, often comparing them with parallel texts from other Upanishads or other literature (including even Vedic hymns, and quite often sections of the Brāhmaṇas and Āraṇyakas).

This book attempts to let the universal Upanisadic knowledge and experience of Divinity and Reality emerge from the original texts and make it accessible to a broader western-oriented audience. The book is in text-commentary format and uses the method of parallel texts. The present book emphasizes the fact that many of the Upanisadic vidyas use the Brahmana knowledge of Divinity as a starting point for developing knowledge of Atman/Brahman.
