Teach Yourself Buddhism book. This is a book on the basics of the religion, described much like a High school text book might dexcribe Buddhism. With few insights from the author, or any devotees, figurheads or leaders of the religion, it's hard to say if this guide really teaches one Buddism. Dec 30, 2013 Alison Flower rated it it was amazing.

Talk about Teach Yourself Buddhism (Teach Yourself - General)


Siatanni
I have read several books on Buddhism. Most of them go off into some rather arcane and cryptic territory. This book is straight forward, understandable, and full of information. It is balanced between formal data (5 plus 5 Precepts, etc.) and parables (The Two Monks). I have yellow tabs on many pages, for future reference and/or re-reading. Highly recommended.

This book gives more of a historical and informational account of Buddhism, rather than teachings and beliefs. It talks of Buddha himself, the different flavors and divisions of Buddhism, Buddhism as it exists in different countries, Buddhist practices and ceremonies, and a basic introduction to beliefs centered around the precepts Buddhist monks follow. Again, it doesn't go too deeply into beliefs, and really only gives a few passages from notable belief texts. What other reviewers say about the FWBO is true, indeed the whole of the last 5 pages or so is a complete sales pitch on the organization. However, it certainly didn't pervade the book or cloud the information being presented.

I found this book to be amazingly well-written and it provides all the basics in one place, which is no mean accomplishment given the wide range of the topic, its long history and the amazingly diverse traditions and history of its practitioners. I found that it either answered, or allowed me to find and answer thru additional research, all the nagging questions I had about Buddhism. would I recommend this as the only book on Buddhism? Not at all, but for a first book I certainly would.

A good book on the subject has to convey the spirit as well as the letter of Buddhism.

This book pays lip service to some of the letters but lacks the spirit of Buddhism being unbalanced and innaccurate for a true understanding of the subject.

Some of the picture captions are plain wrong. At my last viewing there was a leaf of Ficus religiosa, of enormous significance for Buddhists labelled as a "palm leaf" anything but! Maybe they'll improve.

Not bad but they spent way too much time on western Buddhism. I was trying to learn more about Buddhism but hearing about Buddhists in England doesn't really teach you much. If anyone knows of a Buddhist book that talks about the religion and how it is practiced in Southeast Asia (not North America), please recommend.
unmasked
This horrible book is a left-wing political rant disguised as philosophy. Since I can't give zero stars, I give it one, the lowest possible in the Amazon system.

After starting off on solid enough turf, this book veers into a hectoring and pompous semi-manifesto that is more about politics than Buddhism. When he's not using Buddha to cheerlead for feminism and environmentalism (which are fine with me, but this shows that the book is just a thinly disguised political polemic), he's firing complaint after complaint about his objection to free markets and how they have ruined the world. And his "delightful" anecdote about British murderers in prison finding enlightenment and then fasting in order to provide food for Rwanda (this part of his anti-capital punishment rant) is one of his many pathetic contrivances.

Using Buddhism as a thin wrapper for a political book means that he utterly ignores many historical and contemporary aspects of Buddhism, which is to say, those that wouldn't support his political agenda. This book is worse than bad, it's obnoxious. And, after five minutes, tedious.

It's not the socialist political theme that bugs me, I don't care at all about that stuff or anything related to it. But it's cynical bait-and-switch that this book represents that is objectionable, as it merely invokes Buddhism as a structure on which to hang his left-wing manifesto and hector his readers. I'm sure there are plenty of well-written books on socialism and related politics out there, but this sure doesn't qualify.

And there are many good books on Buddhism out there. This isn't one of them, and is, in summary, a cheesy attempt to sell us one topic (politics) disguised as another (Buddhism). A total rip-off.
I can hardly tell you how fine a primer this book is for those Westerners who haven't had the opportunity to grow up knowing what indigenous Buddhists do. I learned about the basics, the different sects and their philosophies, and the straight dope about what it takes to become a Buddhist. I highly, highly recommend this book for anyone testing the waters and who wants to know what Buddhism is all about.
