Wonderfully readable book explaining Buddhism and related issues in clear, succinct langauge. I recommend this book as a good overview for anyone seeking a primer on this fascinating philosphy. He maintains that Buddhism is not a religion in the traditional sense of the word but rather a view man in relation to everything else in the universe. As the Beatles suggested, " It's all within yourself." I give this book four stars.

“Each one of us is hard at war - within. We must face this battlefield; withdraw, as the psychologist would say, our habitual projections of that strife from the world around us, and realize that we should be so busy killing the selfishness within that we really have not the time, much less the will to blow up our neighbour. And when a few more individuals recognize that the war within implies a friendly tolerance of those about one, and of their ways of living and internal fighting, the Hitlers and Stalins and even the unpleasant fellow next door may provoke in everyman a smile, rather than an H-bomb, or even a bow and arrow.” 1 likes
“Projections' - attempts to blame all and sundry for my own past folly - will be found of no avail, and we must learn to withdraw them. None other is to blame for our body, home or circumstance, our friends and enemies, our job and place in the world. We made it all; let us accept and use and better it.” 1 likes
