A great variety of essays in the buddhist tradition. I especially enjoyed three of these essays: one about a complex relationship the author had with his ex wife; one written by a health care worker about the impermanence of the body; and one that included snippets from several authors on the topic of suffering. Very insightful and well written.

Wonderful compilation of short, well-written essays on everything from working with the negative emotions to why meditation is useless. This was a nice overview of what the premier thinkers in all traditions of modern Buddhism are up to.

Great collection of Buddhist writing. Essays that can be read and re-read. I got so much out of this book that I needed right now. Great! And I am thinking about adding it to my personal library to always have it on hand.

I'm pretty much convinced that the best Buddhist writing is no writing. Mu!
