    "I am more relaxed"
    What did you love best about Buddhism: A Beginners Guide Book for True Self Discovery and Living a Balanced and Peaceful Life?

    I have read a lot of books in regards to Buddhism and most of the books just made my mind confused and wanting for more answers. This book is very different from others, it is easy to understand and can be easily applied into everyday practice.

    "In Case You Ever Wondered . . ."

    like I did, what Buddhism is about--here is an in depth but relatively short overview. It will take up less than three hours of your time. Doesn't cost very much, either.

    You might learn, as I did, that Buddha is not there to be worshiped but instead, emulated. This, and many other things you might or might not have wondered about. That alone was a big surprise for me. This is a great little audiobook for the curious. It is a painless way to gain a little more knowledge. If you have any interest and curiosity at all about Buddhism, here is a great way to start. (From the humble opinion of a non-religious person.)

    "Great Information"

    If you are looking for a good beginner's guide on Buddhism, I recommend this book. I found it had the right level of detail to explain without over whelming me. Last thing I need is to try and drink from a fire hose. Don't be intimidated. Here is a good place to start.
