A must have Book (and series) May 31 2008
By NovaGhost - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a novice book for students of buddhism. Though it is the first part of the series "The Foundation of Buddhist Thought" it is slightly more advanced than some of the other books I started out reading. You will want some previous exposure to Buddhism before tackling this series. The explanations are excellent and relavent, however without some previous knowlege or experience there is a chance you might get lost. This should not be a obstacle to anyone though you will learn from it, but it is more helpful to be exposed to some buddhism before tackiling this series in a more serious study.

Don't Be Fooled by the "Novice" Review Jan. 12 2011
By RabbitHorn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is actually pretty deep - as the basics often are. I have read parts of this book online and it's talking about critical aspects of mind consciousness which I would not assign to the classification of "novice text." For example in one section the author describes the "telling differences" between the Mahayana and Theraveda understanding of "craving for transitory aggregates." This is the type of topic that makes the eyes of most Buddhist I know glaze over - and yet it's a very important consideration in the understanding in the mechanics of consciousness. My take on this book is that it is scholarly and suitable for advance students attempting to deepen their understanding by revisiting the profundity to be found in the basics. Enlightening explanations of Pali and Tibetan terms and the use of obscure but pertinent quotes are all more than I normally expect from a mere "novice" text.

Must read May 6 2010
By Jade B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book explains the Buddhism philosophy in simpler concept. Examples in the book are realistic, not things in fairy tales, but things that happen to human everyday. To realize the truth in this life, you must read it!

Delightful Jan. 23 2009
By Cheryl L. Malone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Geshe Tashi Tsering has the gift of not only speaking English but understanding the Western mind. I have a degree in Buddhist Studies and found this text more enjoyable than any I have read in a long time. Geshe is the type of writer that captivates you and you won't be able to put his books down. Can't wait to read his newest title Emptiness, coming out soon.

A great book fore beginners as well as more advanced practitioners. March 21 2009
By R. Couch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A truly great book. Geshe Tsering has a truly unique ability to convey buddhist thought relative to our modern experience. I can't wait to read the other books in the series.
