This book delves more into the specifics of Buddhism, which isn't too surprising given the name of it.

Very insightful book. The Dalai Lama really explains everything simply yet thoroughly. I particularly liked that he has a great way of seeing the current world, he acknowledges the religious view on certain issues such as birth control but looks at it from a modern religious perspective. He is incredibly intelligent and humble and articulate but in a way that even the simplest mind could understand Buddhism.

A spiritual book that guide you towards seeking the enlightenment. The explanation of the Buddhism principles does shed the light of the mind. The concept behind Buddhism does gave you something to dwell on. A slow read in understanding the principles is the key here.

This book indeed pose a questions that may seek to challenged your fundamental belief especially in a way you perceived things or situation.
