    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.

    Story

    If you are a Westerner contemplating adoption of Buddhism, then this is the exact book you'd want, as the author did pretty much the same thing. He walks us through the experience and then reflects it against his own personal life...like having a "Buddy" take the trip with you, showing the way. Parts were so good, I had to rewind to hear them again right away and its a volume I might like to buy, in book, and keep on a shelf for reference later.

    However--to we Americans, the narrator's voice sounds just like the Gekko on the TV insurance commercials. I kept thinking of the little green guy taking The Middle Path. I am sure its just me, but get past that and you have a great listen.

    Come to think of it, would the Buddha himself approved of Audiobooks? I think so, (a) as it saves many trees and (b) the Buddha taught orally and his teachings were committed to memory by early teachers and repeated on verbally.
