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.
This is an excellent collection. Some of the best essays on Buddhism that I've read.
I'm pretty much convinced that the best Buddhist writing is no writing. Mu!
