Selected Buddhist scriptures with interesting and ample commentary by Thich Nhat Hanh. The scriptures are from different traditions and include some of the most famous. The translations are easy to read--think "Today's English"--and appropriate here. I keep dipping in and reading.
Happy I purchased it.
