it was amazing
Read in August, 2010

This is the second book by Batchelor that I've read. Like Buddhism Without Beliefs, this book intertwines person experience with explication about Buddhism; however, this book reaches so much deeper into Batchelor's personal history and experience and the historical record of the Buddha. The resulting picture of the historical Buddha is complex and human; the resulting picture of Buddhism is intimate and functional.

I've been waiting for this book to be written for ten years.
