This book is not a how to guide for Buddhism, but more of an explanation of the how and why certain practices take place. Each topic is pretty short, but that is because you can't read to learn Buddhism, but you must practice. I think this book would be more beneficial to someone who already had some understanding of Buddhism, but if you're patient and keep an open mind then anyone can benefit from this book.

the "San Francisco Rinpoche." too bad he caught cancer not long after this was published, still, the truths printed here, remain. SO-O-O-O highly recommended. Ulrich barely had time to read it , I snatched it back so quickly.

Suzuki-Roshi was one of the first Zen teachers to come to America. This short book introduces some of his clear and simple explanations of some of Zen Buddhism's more difficult concept. Suitable for those just beginning to read about Buddhism and for those who have some Om under their belts.
