This review is from: Buddhism: The Plain Facts (Paperback)
This is a really simple, concise book that gives you a great understanding of the key philosophies of Buddhism. If you just want to get some background on the faith, it's perfect - says it all in plain English,takes you completely to the basics, flows well and links everything together. If you are thinking of following the faith and want to get some insight and context before you take the plunge - or maybe you've already taken the plunge and are very quickly confused by the new concepts - then this too is the book for you. From here you can develop your understanding, but at least you'll know what you want to understand if you read this first.
