Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Batchelor is a graceful, easy writer. His translations of some of the root texts of the four schools as well as his introductory material placing them in context give a good, broad-brush overview of the different branches of Tibetan Buddhism as they grew out of its' roots in India. This is useful to give context as one delves deeper into the Tibetan tradition.
