    This rich, timely, and highly original portrait of the Buddha explores both the archetypal religious icon and Buddha the man. In lucid and compelling prose, Armstrong brings to life the Buddha's quest, from his renunciation of his privileged life to the discovery of a truth that he believed would utterly transform human beings and enable them to live at peace in the midst of life's suffering.

    "Insightful Summary"
    Overall

    I've read several books on Buddhism and looked forward to Armstrong's presentation of the founder. I wasn't disappointed. As before, Armstrong combines both scholarship and empathy in her portrayal. She respects the limits of our knowledge and acknowledges where a westerner might encounter problems. Particularly useful to me was her account of yogic practice at the time of the Buddha and the role it played in his thought.
