But, me and my family never believed in Sai Baba as God or Avatar. We always thought of him as a fraud and scam artist.
His devotees were excellent people and served others with love. They tried to follow many of his teachings in their lives and to worked to propogated good values etc. Especially, his message of universal truth in all religions.
After almost fifteen years I stumbled upon this book and couple of other books on him. These were written by initially skeptic people who started believing in Sai Baba after some personal experiences. I bought and read them eagerly as I was trying to see what I would feel now after all these years. For three days all I did was read these books. I was so curious and excited, I almost wanted to believe everything I read.
This feeling did not last long as I found some very interesting sources on Web giving a different account or explanation of some of the miracles and events described in the book.
If you are curious and want to know about Baba please not only read this book but also the other sources to get a complete picture and then judge for your self.

Good Luck with your journey!!
I gave three stars to this book for excellent description of Sai Baba from a devotee's point of view.
Sai Baba claims that he is omnipresent (i.e. present everywhere at the same time, all the time), omniscient (knows everything which happens in this world and beyond, past, present and future) and omnipotent(capable of doing anything; things happen at his will). He claims that he is God. Is He an arrogant fellow who is extraordinarily intelligent and has managed to fool and take advantage of all his followers, or is He the Creator, God Himself?
You will be able to answer this question when you have finished reading the book. Note: This book definitely does not describe Shri Sathya Sai Baba completely. It just gives an account of his miracles, which He Himself claims are mere "visiting cards", and they do not form a major part of his mission.
