Publisher's Summary

Using delightful and deceptively powerful stories from everyday experiences, beloved Buddhist teacher Sylvia Boorstein demystifies spirituality, charts the path to happiness through the Buddha's basic teachings, and presents the means to eliminate hindrances and see clearly to develop a realistic course toward wisdom and compassion. A wonderfully engaging guide, full of humor, memorable insights, and love. Boorstein, known by friends and colleagues as a "Jewish grandmother bodhisattva," is highly-skilled in making the universal wisdom of traditional Buddhist teachings available to all.

Simple and elegant

Sylvia Boorstein wrote (and delivered) one of the most simple, elegant books on living zen. In a concise but interesting way she tells you how to follow Buddha's teachings and why following them makes your life work.

good content; poor audio quality

I mistook this for Boorstein's later Audible release, Happiness is an Inside Job. While this older audiobook is an engaging, accessible introduction to Buddhism, the older download format (2)(at least my download) made Boorstein sound as if she narrated while undergoing dental work.

Audible, can't you convert this older format? The book is still a worthy a listen.
