    Thoroughly enjoyable.

    Bought this on a recommendation from a friend. It's informative and well-written. Not in align with the rigid beliefs I was brought up with, but somehow comforting and reassuring. It is a good book to evaluate your spiritual side whether or not you have religion in your life. This book is the beginning of a new phase in life for me.

    Interesting, informative

    This was a simply written, easy to understand book about a particular school of buddhism. I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in spirituality, religions, or even a curiosity of buddhism.

    Excellent Introduction to Nichiren Buddhism

    This is an excellent introduction to the growing Buddist tradition of Nichiren Buddhism. It covers questions that might be asked by a beginner, as well as goes into deeper areas, such as death and the soul. Recommended, especially for those who are searching for Buddhism.

    Buddha in Your Mirror: Practical Buddhism and the Search for Self

    This book is very good. It's basically a guide to becoming happy from the Nichiren Buddhist perspective. In clear, easy to understand and encouraging words, it gets to the heart of Nichiren Buddhism, and instructs one on how to practice. Concepts such as 'the oneness of life and environment,' illustrate how our surroundings mirror our life condition, and the way to change our surroundings is by changing ourselves first. Putting this book's teachings to work takes effort, but the results are invaluable.
