What the Critics Say

"This is the clearest and most precise exposition of Buddhism I have ever read. If you’re looking for enlightenment rather than just scholarly knowledge, you’d better read this." (Robert Pirsig, author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance)
"This is about awareness. Not awareness of something in particular, but awareness itself - being awake, alert, in touch with what is actually happening. It’s about examining and exploring the most basic questions of life. It’s about relying on the immediate experience of this present moment. It’s about freedom of mind." (Steve Hagen)

I can't recommend this book enough

This short book is for anyone who wants to know what Buddhism is and for those who want to truly understand it's teachings. I've listened to a lot of books on Buddhism but this book is one of the best and deepest teachings I've come across so far. Have already listened to it twice and can see myself listening many more times to try and grasp it's profound teaching. Thank you.
