Through this insightful exploration and interpretation, the Dalai Lama offers not only scriptural commentary but also his personal reflections and spiritual advice. His direct approach, lucid style, and practical description of the essential instructions the student must follow to attain enlightenment make The Path to Enlightenment one of the most accessible introductions to Tibetan Buddhism ever published.
"Practical and understandable...highly recommendable as a guide to Tibetan Buddhism." (Quest)
I was not sure about getting this book. I thought it might be too far above my spiritual plain if you will.
So far I have listened to parts of the book three times, gone through the complete book twice and will probably do it again.
The book was well spoken.
I will say, however, I want to get the book from the library to check the spelling on some words and chants.

This book reminds me that fire and brimstone is not limited to Christianity; it thrives in Buddhism as well. I really didn't learned anything new from this book, and HH Dalai Lama comes across as rather preachy. This is not his best work.
Narration by Lama Ken McLeod is excellent and the best reason to get this.

The lamrim teachings are delivered in a gradual way starting from the small scope, all the wsy to the Great scope. This book does just that, great for beginners and advanced alike.
