Publisher's Summary

Ed is having a hard time - at work, in his love life and, well, generally. Then he meets an unlikely Buddhist - who drinks and smokes and talks his kind of language. Bit by bit, things begin to change...Ed doesn't always take Geoff's advice.

Or, when he does he lapses at the crucial moment. His path to understanding is not a straight one, especially as life keeps throwing more and more 'stuff' at him. Often he fails - like most of us, in fact.
But sometimes he manages to get it right. And when he does, surprising things begin to happen ...In The Buddha, Geoff and Me Edward Canfor-Dumas brings all his skills to bear in an absorbing story of everyday city life, where the characters stand out with all their human strengths and weaknesses, and the ending brings Ed - and perhaps all of us? - a hope we didn't necessarily expect.The Buddha, Geoff and Me - for anyone who's ever begun to wonder what the whole damn thing is all about.

excellent

Some great buddhist concepts in a way that is easily to absorb, down to earth and meaningful. This novels contains great nuggets of wisdom and whilst not mentioned directly, is based on Japanese Nichiren Buddhism. A must read for anyone who has a humanistic and compassionate take on living.

Loved this.

Engaging, funny, poignant, thought-provoking. Lots of British humour. After listening to many other books about Buddhism, this was refreshingly down-to-earth in its delivery - both the writing itself and the narration. Can't wait to read/listen to the follow-up book.
