My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This lil’ book was on the Recommended Readings list for my Buddhism class. I can never resist a text from the Very Short Introductions series. This met my expectations! It’s small, concise, and objective, offering a history of Buddhism and how it has traveled through nations. A very basic overview of key concepts and terms in Buddhism is also provided throughout. This is not a spiritual book like the other Buddhist texts I’ve read, and it’s not meant to be. It’s just what the title says: a very introduction to Buddhism. Well done!
