    Very small lessons, but very intersting. But it is a start to get to know Buddhisam. Thanks for the free offer.

    Well written and quite informative. A joy to read and contemplate. Although it is a pretty hard sell of the author's items for daily meditation it provokes critical thought. For those who do not have the natural ability to enjoy the struggles life provides it is a good vehicle to seek to escape daily lose-lose and start the journey to ultimate spiritual peace.Meditating on the author's viewpoint I came the realization that some of us found that "ultimate spiritual peace" rather boring and instead we live each moment as the gift it is rather than a burden of cycle of endless suffering. Living with integrity, honor, and responsibility doesn't imply the need to reverse bad karma but rather the conscious choice to live as a personal choice rather a life prescribed by others.

I will recommend this audio book to all.

    A short commentary on the historical life of Buddha, as well as an overview if Buddhist thought - including tolerance, peace, benevolence, a brotherhood of all men. Against that backdrop are also balance, detachment, concepts of an illusory world and self-control and self-purification. Olcott was a theosophist, so the book reflects that worldview. Nevertheless, it is a classic and interesting work on the life and teachings of one of the great teachers of all time.

    Not what I was expecting, I thought it would be longer. Good but was expecting more from it as to the teachings of the Buddha.
