A book that gives you a breif idea on buddah's teaching, his life, and development of the the religion. Briefs of the schools of religion that follow the same teaching are also provided. Good overall picture given on the links between the original teaching and the later development of the religion. You can definitely understand more about the relationships between the original teaching and the subsequent development and branches of buddah after reading the book. A simply delightful and simple read.

This book is a good and easy to read summary. Of course any summary is bound to be an over-simplification.
The illustrations are the weakest point. For some reason the illustrator of this book gives the Buddha open eyes, which is atypical. May be he is worried that the usual lidded-eye Buddha will not engage the reader.
Also the choice of images are not always apt. An image of the Earth Goddess washing her hair to sweep away Mara, his daughters and his demons thus rescuing the Buddha is shown as if the Earth Goddess is one of the lascivious temptresses.
