By A Customer on 18 Sept. 2003
Format: Paperback
This is a very good book. I've read many introductions to Buddhism in relation to my practice and my teaching of Buddhist psychology. at one level, this book is excellent as a beginners' introduction to an overview of the Buddhist path and meditation practice. at another level, it is an advanced comprehensive but terse guide to a multitude of perspectives on the path and practice.

By A Customer on 1 Dec. 2004
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book - it explains the subject in a clear and understandable fashion. The cover of the book may be off putting to some as it may make the book seem awfully serious and complicated. However, this is not at all the case. Yes it is a thorough introduction but it is written in a clear and concise language. Highly recommended.
