Publisher's Summary

This book is a guide to help you understand Buddhism, how to practice Buddhism, and how to work your way toward true enlightenment.
Buddhism is often considered a religion by new practitioners. For many Buddhists it is more of a way of life than a religion. Buddhists believe meditation and other practices will lead to changes in oneself. These changes are aimed at creating awareness, wisdom, and kindness within in order to reach spiritual enlightenment.
Buddhism represents the end of suffering for anyone able to attain enlightenment, because the person no longer dwells on what they lack but learns to live with the reality of what is, without needs, wants, or desires.
Here is a preview of what you will learn:

What is Buddhism?
Who was Buddha?
What are the teachings of Buddhism?
Noble Truths and bodhisattva vows
The Noble Eightfold Path
The precepts of Buddhism
The three schools of Buddhism
The three treasures of Buddhism
The three poisons of Buddhism
Exercises for mindfulness
Exercises for meditation
What is reincarnation?
And much, much more

Ok for an intro

I am new to Buddhism hence my interest in this book and although I feel this book taught me a thing or two I wasn't very fond of the narrators style. He spoke too fast for my liking. Almost as if he rushed though it hardly even pausing between sentences. For someone completely ignorant but interested in walking the path of the Buddha, I would have enjoyed and absorbed more of this had the narrator read a little slower. It's a lot to take in in a small amount of time. I shall listen again. Good deal for the price tho.
