What the Critics Say

Understanding Buddhism is an extremely well organized study, reflecting clear thinking and lucid style. The scholarly approach is outstanding. The width and depth of the author's knowledge of both Western and Buddhist traditional ideas are far beyond what is often presented as a comparative study.” (Herbert Guenther)
