Publisher's Summary

Marking a significant departure from Noah Cicero's fictional and poetic works, Blood-Soaked Buddha/Hard Earth Pascal is a lucid philosophical treatise. Rather than entertain dogma, Cicero approaches a discussion of Buddhism from the refreshing perspective of the everyman, providing a profound spiritual analysis as well as a sharp critique of capitalism. There are even some pretty good ghost stories. 

"Buddhism isn't for scholars and priests and masters. It's not a religion. It's for anyone who wants to find a better way. It's practical, it's logical, it's sensible and it's real. Just like this book."

"Far too many books about Buddhism get bogged down in scholarly doublespeak. Others are full of far-fetched fantasies. Noah's book isn't like that. It's a real book for real people." (Brad Warner, author of Hardcore Zen)

Powerful!

This audiobook was recommended to me by a friend. I went into it a bit skeptical but I can honestly say that it's had a profound impact on me. I look forward to checking out more from this author.

Best book on Buddhism I've read

Huge fan of Noah Cicero, but this book is a life-changer. Buddhist thought can help everyone lead a more relaxed, thoughtful life. Great reading by Sara Morsey too.

I think this book changed my life

Sara Morsey did a great read of this super entertaining, yet profound book on every day Buddhism. Not to sound dramatic, but it may have changed my life. Give it a shot.

Noah Cicero is extremely Woke

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was deeply affected by this book and I feel that the author's words may stick with me for the rest of my life. Cicero delivers his message in a very clear and concise way without ever being too weighty or confusing. I'm looking forward to checking out more of his work.

Buddhism For Dummies

Any additional comments?

I found this to be extremely enlightening. The author breaks down the basics of Buddhism in a very modern way that's not at all preachy, but rather refreshing and relatable. So many little nuggets of wisdom in this audiobook. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Clear & Concise

Gutsy. A simple book on the Buddhist idea for all of us. You don’t need to be an intellectual to understand it......only a yearning to be a better human being. It is well worth your time.
