A Great Contribution
on July 13, 2011
This book comes as a hugely welcome, reader-friendly primer on a very important area of study. Over the last few decades, scientists, Buddhists, and scholars have renewed investigation into the resonance between science and Buddhism. Analysis of theoretical physics and Buddhism and crossover studies in Buddhism, meditation, and neuroscience are making significant progress in understanding the nature of the cosmos, the wisdom of the Buddha, the importance of meditation, and the structure of the psyche. This book manages to condense and simplify the science and the philosophy, and it offers several recommendations for meditation practice aimed at helping the reader to directly experience the knowledge.
Buddha's Brain is suitable for beginner and intermediate readers or newcomers to the field of neuroscience. It is well written, balanced, and well presented. I recommend this book highly. In fact, I bought extra copies and gave them away as gifts! Enjoy!
I'm waiting for the next book: Beyond the Brain!
