Book: Buddha

by Karen Armstrong (2001).

A terrific entry in the Penguin Lives series. Armstrong takes a man and spiritual leader whom we know little about, and uses this precious little information as a foundation to both explain his basic teachings and their place within historical context. I learned more about Buddhism from this book than from any other I've read.


Speaking of Faith has a great interview with Karen Armstrong, plus web extras.
