Buddhism: Plain and Simple

Buddhism: Plain and Simple, by Steve Hagen, is a book about being awake. The book offers you a view of Buddhism without the traditions and customs that have accumulated over the course of five-thousand years. Steve Hagen is a great writer who I think captures the spirit and essence of Buddhism and gives it to you in a format that is both easy to understand and meaningful. Unlike some other books on Buddhism that I have read, Buddhism: Plain and Simple cuts straight to the chase, and it stays true to its goals throughout the whole book.

For someone who wants to learn about a great religion, or just wants a refresher course in the true essence of Buddhism, this book is a great choice. With down to earth advice, and great examples and excerpts from the great teachers of Buddhism. This book does not offer very deep insight if you want to go very deep into the ideas and practices of Buddhism, but it does give the beginner a good platform to start their travels into Buddhism.
