ineresting and worthwhile
Moore goes to several different kinds of Buddhist retreats and monasteries and reports his experiences. He is skeptical but also really wanting to find meaning. The narrator is good, seems to fit the voice you'd expect of the possibly irritating personality of the author. I found the book worthwhile on several levels. Thought provoking due to the philosophy. But also very humorous. And fun because of the great variety of events he attends. After paying for attendance and travel to all kinds of places, he stumbles on a group in his hometown.
If this book sounds interesting to you, pick it and you won't find it to be a disappointment. I enjoyed it. If it sounds dumb, don't pick. I suspect many would not like this selection, might react "what rot".

A really good read if contemplating Buddhism
What did you love best about The Accidental Buddhist?
I'm someone who's been exploring religion and Buddhism for a while, trying to understand my own spirituality. I enjoyed this read as I related to the author in a number of ways. It's a lighthearted easy short read (listen) and I can see myself listen to it again a few times over.
