Very clear and easy to understand little book. All I needed to have a basic knowledge of Theravada Buddhism.
Absolutely worth the cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little book to learn about Buddhism 14 Sept. 2013
By Ryan Loiacono - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book as I am new to the Buddhist teachings and wanted to learn the basics. This is a great little book that you can read in an afternoon and covers just that, the basic teachings and practices of Buddhism. It is an easy read and I recommend as a starter book in learning Buddhism.
5.0 out of 5 stars SIMPLE AND clear! 6 Jan. 2014
By Harry Weidlich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I got this book because it's title says: Simple!
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.
Well done!

Very nice introduction to Theravada and general Buddhism foundations.
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.
