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.

The waistral who learned compassion.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Not really. Too much to absorb. Needed to stop and think about it in portions to better savor it.
Any additional comments?
Too bad it's not in book format.

So many books about buddhism seem to be in the live lecture format. Part of the reason that I chose this was that it is not in this format.
This is a proper book. It is read at a sensible pace, free of extended pauses.
Most importantly this book refers to aspects of teaching from various schools of Buddhism. There is content here and plenty of it.
The writing is skillful, precise, and economical.
I will definitely listen to these five hours again. What better reccomendation is there than that?

A good mix of thorough knowledge and basic explanation, technical terms and basic understanding. It has a well reasoned structure but as an audio book, sometimes difficult to grasp all the Sanskrit content.
