    "Great straightforward listen!!"

    I've read many texts and listened to many books on meditation and Buddhism and this one was one of the easiest to understand and very clear in it's message. A great first time listen for someone just starting a meditation practice or learning what Buddhism is all about.

    "A wonderful book about the teachings of the Buddha"

    I found this book to be very informative and well written. I suggest it to anyone who is truly interested in Buddhism or merely trying to become more skillful at practicing mindfulness.

    "Best book on Buddhism I have read so far. "

    This work methodically covers the most important aspects of Buddhism as a practice. The 8 Fold Path is HOW to reduce and even end suffering. This is the Buddha's whole point of what it is that you need to do.

    It's fine if you don't agree with some of the more extreme ideas in the book. You don't have to. Anything you choose to take from it will help.

    Story
    "Difficult to integrate into my western life"

    I think I'm going to return this. This is not a bad book or recording. But I just listened to the author say that what we are striving for is a lack of attachment to anything, which included (and he said this) houses, families, schools, medical insurance, hospitals, good roads. And he says one who wants to remain attached to these things does not have the state of mind it takes to attain permanent bliss. This person who wants these things has not understood the Buddha's first or second truth. (He says this an hour and two minutes into the book).

    I am a westerner. So wanting these things is not an option for me. I want them. I am not living in a monastery. There are books out there that take this into account, mostly along the lines of secular Buddhism, so I will listen to those.
