I found this book a great introduction in Buddhism. It has helped me resume a routine of meditation. It is amazing how relaxing meditation truly is once you give it a chance. You will learn about definition of several life terms, like Happiness and Tolerance. You will learn about the different kinds of Buddhism and you will also learn a short concept for each type mentioned. You will also learn about Meditation, Mindfulness Breathing, Loving Kindness Meditation and some other key concepts like Letting Go, Nirvana, Reincarnation, Karma, Dharma, Mindfulness and its three fundamentals. If you knew nothing at all I think it would be very overwhelming because of the amount of information presented so quickly. It answers some great questions about the practice of Buddhism and I would certainly recommend it.
The author surely has an extensive knowledge of this religion.

I read another book on Buddhism, it was a total waste of time. In that very few things were explained and each page had a small explanation of things….To define the 8 separate meanings of the Noble 8-fold path, the author had taken a single space for each one, but they contain only about one paragraph long explanations. Meh! What a waste.
Buddhism as a way of life…
This is truly a wonderful self-help book. I think this book can be a great company when you are drinking coffee in a café and just simply living the moment. I like how this book made use of the quotes from well-respected people to support the content of each chapter. Most importantly, I have found great pleasure in learning new things that would help me to become at peace with myself, which in return will contribute well to how I am towards my fellowmen. Empathy and mindfulness are the attributes that I would really try to incorporate with the way I live my life. Meditation on the other hand is something I have to think about first. I just think such things should be done with the help and support of other person or people who have successfully or at least in the process of fulfilling this act. I agree with this book when it said that Buddhism, is not necessarily about religion it’s about one’s well-being. I believe that I can be a better Christian if I apply the principles of Buddhism in my life. Must grab! Find your inner peace!

Reading this book, conclude that I am perfect right to purchase this book because of its step by step strategies on how to incorporate Buddhism. Also this book has full of information about Buddhism from the essence of Buddhism and to its benefits of practicing the teaching of Buddhism. I learned that it takes more than meditation to achieve peace; instead it is a total change in lifestyle. I think I will keep re-reading this book to constantly remind me of its positivity.
An easy to understand book. get this!
This book on Buddhism is well written and straight forward and easy to understand. It starts from explaining the history of Buddhism and tells all on its basics and history. It teaches on it as a religion and also as a way of life. The author also talks on mindfulness and how you you can practice mindfulness and attain peace of mind. Exercises to gaining mindfulness are well written and explained and indeed this book will help you practice to go about it as a religion and more so as a way of life. Well written. Kudos to the author.
This book revealed many amazing things. Buddhism believes that our senses are like a veil which in part reveals reality, and in part masks it as well; think about your senses as a partly see-through veil in front of you; you can only see what is behind in part, and through a filter; our senses are this very filter; they allow us to understand that there is something we can perceive, but they do not allow us to perceive it fully.

It is really more on philosophy than religion. To embrace happiness it should be start in you. You choose your happiness. When happiness comes it comes with peace. All should be incorporate with positive thoughts and application of all the learning in life. Use everything you learn in order for you to achieve your goals. It is the key to happiness and never mind all the stress.

This book talks about everything from introducing mindfulness and peace into your lives all the way back to the basic original information on Buddha. Also explains that Buddhism doesn’t try to take away from any religion, but to enhance whatever religion you choose to follow. I’m looking for more peace in my life. I’m trying to train myself to be kinder and gentler me, so that this will spill over to everything and everybody else in my life as well. I cannot express into words how happy I am I came across this book.
