Publisher's Summary

The Eightfold Path is the most widely known formulation of the Buddha's teaching. It is ancient, reaching back to the Buddha's very first discourse, and it is highly venerated as a unique treasury of wisdom and practical guidance. The teaching of the Eightfold Path challenges us to grasp the implications of that vision, and asks us to transform ourselves in its light. Like the teaching itself, this work covers every aspect of life.

Excellent

As an amateur Buddhist student and practitioner I've done a fair amount of study on the topic, and I must say that this audiobook has offered the most clear, interesting, and inspiring explanation of the Noble Eightfold Path that I've come across. The author takes us far beyond the conventional ways in which most of us learn about the path, giving a much more profound (and correct) interpretation of each of the eight steps. I now have a much greater understanding of the path, and of Buddhism itself. I highly recommend this to both students and practitioners of all levels.
