UnsurpassedReview by Charley
This seemingly modest book is both easy to understand and deceptively profound. It presents a clear and precise instruction on how to enter, make progress on, and complete the path to Enlightenment. If you are looking to understand what Buddhism is, or actually practice, there is no better book. (Reviewed on 3/29/2016)
