This is a simple introduction book to Buddhism. For the novice; it shows you the framework and pillars of what is buddhism, and for those who already know some, you'll still learn something. It is a small book that you can read in one sitting. It is all content and no empty talk just filling up pages. The author knows how to write which makes reading most enjoyable. This book, and author, deserve five stars.
