I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the university at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me.

Some 25 centuries after the Buddha started teaching, his message continues to inspire people across the globe, including those living in predominantly secular societies. What does it mean to adapt religious practices to secular contexts? Stephen Batchelor, an internationally known author and teacher, is committed to a secularized version of the Buddha's teachings. The time has come, he feels, to articulate a coherent, ethical, contemplative, and philosophical vision of Buddhism for our age.

In parts this book was very interesting. It went into great detail of the Buddha's life. It was rather long and at times I found it a bit dry. I think this book is suited to those who have already studied Buddhism and want to know more about its history. Whilst it did touch on Buddhism in the secular age I felt like the title of the book was a little misleading. I was expecting more examples of the application of Buddhist philosophy and practise in a modern western environment.
I would only recommend this book to serious Buddhist heads
