    I've studied buddhism for my entire life and have read many books on the subject - this book stands out as a beautifully written, concise, wise, understandable but not simplistic guide to buddhism.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Just as the title says, this is a great book to read for anyone wanting to explore what it takes to live the life the buddha discussed, not the life buddhism preaches.

    This was the buddhism as taught by the buddha himself (theravada buddhism) and it was only later incorporated into beliefs about the supernatural (mahayana buddhism).

    Batchelor describes his own understanding of the above, going into much greater depth to assert that belief in the absurd is not necessary (and often distracts from the goal).

    This books gives a general description of buddhism but the vocabulary can be a bit trying at times.
