I'm interested in Nichiren Buddhism and the SGI and I heard about this book and thought I'd give it a try. It's really interesting - but I found it difficult to fully understand the concepts without more background knowledge. Having now read "The Buddha, Geoff and Me" - (BRILLIANT)- which explains Nichiren Buddhism in a v clear way through a novel - I will go back to The Reluctant Buddhist and I will now understand the concepts more easily. TRB is well written and accessible but I suggest reading TBGM first before tackling it.
