Thorson's First Directions: Buddhism
(Thorsons (HarperCollinsPublishers, London: 2001)
READ: September 2005
This is a very small book (under 90 pages) which seeks to introduce readers to the concepts of Buddhist religion and thought. The Buddha, the Dharma (Four Truths, etc.), the Sangha (goals), the ethics - all are explained in the most simple of terms. Beautiful pictures are included as well. A small, enjoyable read.
