    "Great glimpse into secular buddhism"

    I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more about secular buddhism. The reading by the author was pleasant, as I always prefer to hear the author read their own words, but it wasn't the very best audio recording of a book I've ever heard. The timing could have been improved a bit. Overall: great book and would recommend it!

    "Quick overview of Secular Buddhism"

    I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick reminder (or introduction) of some of the key teachings of Buddhism from a secular lens.

    I wish he would have gone deeper into certain topics, but I understand that wasn't the point of this book.

    "Highly recommended"

    Content was excellently put and seamless. The editing needs a little more sound spacing between sentences, subheadings, and chapters sometimes.

    "Great content, mediocre performance"

    Mr. Rasheta's writing was concise and very thoughtful, but the performance of the audiobook itself was lacking.

    The delivery was very monotone, and each sentence seemed to run into the next, without any clear demarcation.

    Overall, though - it was a good, quick audiobook for anyone interested in the secular flavor of Buddhism.

    "Valuable messages to live by"

    Although this is a short book, the author so eloquently and simply explains the valuable teachings of Buddhism as a way of living your life in a nut shell. He provides many relatable examples through his personal stories and parables as he touches on the most fundamental principles. If you put these teachings into practice and not just read this book as a voyeur, it will change your life. This book can be thought of as a small pocket manual to live life by as you learn let go of your preconceived notions of reality. What sets this book apart from all others is the continuous teachings that can be found through the author's podcast and website on Secular Buddhism.

    "loved the content"

    I originally listened to Noah's podcast and recently purchased his book. I recommend both. Noah narrated this himself and his tone fits the content very well.

    "Brief, but a good introduction to the topic"

    The concepts in the book seemed to pass by pretty quickly, without giving them much time to sink in. I'll have to listen to it again sometime to try and grasp it all, but overall I feel it was still a good introductory book.

    "INSPIRING and COMFORTING"

    This book revealed to me that my nature is, and always has been, that of a secular Buddhist. I was miserable within religion, and now see that suffering as essential to my finding and recognizing this philosophy. Therefore: all is perfect. I enjoyed the author's reading of the material. Thank you!

    "Such a lovely book."

    Purchased as an audio book, this was such a pleasure to listen to. For me personally, it's the most meaningful book on Buddhism I've come across. I would highly recommend it.
