In many respects this was fascinating and I did enjoy it. This was a free download and there were no formatting problems.

However it just isn't really about the life of Buddha. It is more about the views of the author. As an introduction or as an explanatory text, it doesn't do a very good job.

I still thought that it was a worthwhile read and I did find it interesting and got something out of it. It is short and though it introduces many concepts that can be a little hard to get your head around it is written in a pretty easy to understand style.

I am glad that I downloaded and read this book.

This is perhaps the best book I'll ever read , it's most certainly the greatest I've read so far in my 63 years of age .

It seems to be the background musings and interpretations of life for all religions.

I'm the original anti religion guy , I totally abhor the concept of organised religious control by some twerp who claims to be able to see the kings fine clothes. Which is a childrens story about idiots conning idiots till a child comes along and says get real ...stop lying , there is nothing there .

This book contains some of the concepts & principles that have brought man from being a fierce caveman into being able to live together in communities that help support each other to the common good . It's the one thing that not only stands the test of time , nothing better has been invented to better it.

You don't need religion to practice these concepts either , I've been a caveman practicing them and didn't realize it .

Now thanks to the author you too can develop you mind and heart.

I have read other books which do the job better.
One point that struck me. He quotes Edwin Arnold saying 'It is 2500 years since humanity put forth such a flower.' I beg to differ. I reckon the man Jesus, without all the add-ons like virgin birth, was an even brighter 'flower'.
Having said that, I think Edwin Arnold's book The Light of Asia is excellent.

This is a lovely little book to dip into. Very philosophical and gives you some good life lessons to ponder on, some really good wisdom. I have this on my phone and dip into it when i have quite times for a few minutes.
Would recommend.

I didn't know there were radical Buddhists, I haven't read it all. It's not in keeping with Buddha's calm teachings.
