Completely Lost Me
on 18 September 2013
From the other reviews I expected this book to give me more of an insight and explanation of Buddhism, as I am quite interested in finding out more about it. Unfortunately, after struggling with it for about an hour I realised that I hadn't much more of a clue than I had when I started and the book had totally failed to engage with me. Having started with on open mind I was feeling that I was reading a load a pseudo-psychological claptrap and getting irritated with it, wondering when it was going to crack on and get to the point.
My impression is that this is more a book for a converted Buddhist to perhaps explore a little deeper some of the teachings they are already familiar with. I certainly don't think it's the right book for a beginner and it wasn't at all what the reviews had led me to believe. A complete disappointment.
