Customer Review

on 27 September 2009
I came across this book by accident, looking at the American Amazon site. Quite a few of the reviews there said Steve Hagen repeated the same thing over and over again, one even said the whole book could have been condensed into just twenty pages. I would say this is missing the point. Anyone who practices some form of Buddhism finds after a while that it is often about re-visiting the same things over and over again always from slightly different perspectives (which our life offers us quite naturally)until we understand. Hagen does this wonderfully. I found the times he dipped into ideas from modern science very interesting. The fact is we really do need to 'wake up' and 'see' as he puts it, but until we have tasted this, it can be hard to understand that it is truly possible and quite different from what we expect. Buddhism is just as Steve puts it...not what you think. If you are at the beginning, this book gives an insight you can trust. If more experienced, it gives valuable incentive to keep up the practice.
