Discoveries: Wisdom of the Buddha (Discoveries (Abrams))
Mike Jensen's review
May 26, 2012
Like Buddhism (and life) itself, it is hard not to like this book and hard not to complain about it. It is supposed to be a dispassionate book at Buddhist history and thought, but the apparent devotion of the writer comes through. You will find nothing critical or questioning in this book. It is a presentation of mainstream Buddhist beliefs. Having registered these complaints, the book is presented very well but would benefit from a skeptical tone even if that is just confined to a final chapter, but the devout look is not without interest.
