Excellent place to start

For those new to Buddhism, this will answer many questions and get you started on a path to mindfulness. I found the narrator’s voice calm and even toned. I’ll disagree with those that said “robotic”. The chapters follow a clear order and build upon the knowledge.

Recommended!

The book is in a question-answer format and covers all I would ask on my own. I've never learned so much about religion so fast. It's a promising Buddhism audio piece I'd like to listen to again and again.

I will be back for more.

A wonderful experience listening to a book being read to you. But one worth trying at least once. I will be back for more. Thank you for the experience. I found myself following along intently and even able to apply concepts immediately into my everyday life.

A great book to listen to!

A great book to listen to for those beginning their path on their practice. Identifies what to do to begin your journey to be a Buddha. The narrator speaks clearly and at just the right speed. I just finished but intend to repeat. The Q and A format make it easy to go back to refresh understanding.

Listening to over and over.

I'm a novice at Buddhism and this book clarified lots of questions I had about mantras, shrines, and rituals. This is a good introduction for people with little or no understanding. I like how many questions were answered instead of using vague metaphors.
