Buddhism has been around some 2500 years but given its focus on living in the present and understanding the socially constructed nature of our realities it is no surprise to find current science rapidly catching up with the wisdom of the Buddha. Thoroughly enlightening.
I loved the presentation and down to earth style in which the lectures were given. However, without the diagrams which the author can be heard drawing on the blackboard, and which are referred to constantly, a number of the explanations are un-intelligable. A big pity, but I don't regret the purchase in spite of this.
