I like simple, especially in subjects that may be daunting due to strange terminology.
The author took.pains to present the subject understandably and with clear definitions of Pali and Sanskrit words.
Good to read befor goint to Theravada country as it touches cultural issues that may arise without some knowledge, eg why monks do not behave gratefull when dontated etc.
