This book really does what it says. Ricard offers a simple insight into the budhist perspective and in doing so provides a guide to improving your life that can be followed by anyone, budhist or not. Ricard explains every concept so thoroughly and presents his arguments so clearly you cannot help but see the logic behind what he is saying.
