Publisher's Summary

The best-selling introduction to Buddhism. Includes Bonus Meditation CD. Every once in a while you come across an extraordinary book with the power to change your life. Buddhism For Busy People is one such book.

What does it take to be happy? We've all asked ourselves this question at some point, but few of us have found the path to lasting fulfillment.

David Michie thought he had achieved his life's goals - the high level job, the expensive city apartment, the luxury car, great holidays...but a small voice was telling him he wasn't really happy. A chance remark from a naturopath sent him to his local Buddhist centre. There, he began the most important journey of his life.

In this simple, beautifully written book, David Michie opens the door to the core teachings of Tibetan Buddhism. With wry, self-deprecating humour, he shows us how he began to incorporate Buddhist practices into his daily life. He explains how he came to understand the difference between the temporary pleasures of ordinary life, and the profound sense of well-being and heart-felt serenity that comes from connecting with our inner nature.

Enjoyed this book

I was already familiar with most concepts in the book but I enjoyed the way it was presented in a straight forward, concise manner scratching the surface of this ancient wisdom & revisiting these practises and ideas. I enjoyed David’s personal story and his journey. Valuable for any reader, and yes busy in particular. Will read again.

A more direct approach to Buddhism

Although this book provides a comprehensive understanding of Buddhism, it is a crash-course to Buddha's teachings and the very introductory explanation.

I was looking specifically for something like that and quite enjoyed the reading (read twice in a month) but if you are looking into the deeper understanding of Tibetan Buddhism, might be too superficial.
