It's a little silly at times and there's some hilarious fourth-wall breaking here and there, but ultimately this is a great book to introduce the fundamental teachings of the Buddha for someone interested in learning them, including some practical application examples for regular people (not isolated monks).

I picked this up hoping it would serve to help me introduce the teachings to my almost-7yo, but even though it breaks things down very simply, the comics themselves don't exactly help break i

Entertaining, accessible, insightful, and relatable. This takes a look at Buddhism as applied to common personal scenarios. I know little about Buddhism, so this book is a good introduction to Buddhism, touting its benefits when applied to your life.

My only problem with this book is that it was not bingeable for me. The ideas needed some time to roll around in my head for better understanding.

Trying to learn a little about Buddhism is a daunting task. It is 2,500 years old and has as many truths as believers, at least. I wanted to read some of the actual words handed down from the historical Buddha but without a framework to understand how Buddhism is grasped today I was unsuccessful in making progress. This book does a nice job of presenting little "everyday life" situations in which to elaborate on basic precepts like The Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path, and the Three Treasur ...more

There is nothing basic about Buddhism--it goes way beyond karma (which people often misunderstand) and vegetarianism (some monks ate meat...but that's another story). Trust me, I took graduate level courses about Buddhist philosophy and WOW! I saw how little I REALLY knew about the subject. But if you have always been interested in learning more about Buddhism, this silly little book is filled with anecdotes and information that do a wonderful job of explaining core concepts. The characters that ...more

I thought this book was just great. It's a really quick read, but it's amazing how well it can break down some really complex topics into simple terms that anyone can understand. I don't have much experience in Buddhism, but from what I've read so far, I'm a big fan of the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path. This book took those teachings and helped me understand them in ways I hadn't grasped before.

picked this up in chinatown last week - it contains a decent amount of engrish, but that didn't distract from the books message about the virtues of being super-mellow.
