I've personally been a Buddhist for a few years, but embarrassingly enough, there was a lot that I didn't know which this book enlightened for me.
If you are a begginer in Buddhism or if you already identify with the religion but haven't studied it enough, you may find this very useful!
I would have liked more information about Buddhism dharma and teachings rather than information about Buddhism art and architecture.
Overall I would say it is a good start if you want to learn the very basics. You'll be disappointed if you are looking for anything more.
When it comes to religion, I’m quite the fan of Buddhism. And believe me when I say I have read more than my fair share of intro to Buddhism type books. That’s why I’m excited to tell you I recently read my new favorite book of the genre, “Buddhism 101” by Arnie Kozak, PhD.
The cover describes “Buddhism 101” as a “Crash Course in Buddhism”, and what an amazing crash course it is! Despite its diminutive size, perfect for carrying in a purse (ask me how I know), “Buddhism 101” leaves no stone unturned. Kozak covers everything Buddhism, not just separating schools, but discussing the subtleties of the religion as they vary by country. He starts at the very beginning, before Buddha was Buddha, and leads you through a time line that eventually spans the globe to today.
“Buddhism 101” does more than just describe the religion, it addresses many questions that a specifically Western audience might ask, and discusses Buddhist practices in the modern Western world. Want to know enough about Buddhism to discuss it intelligently? Want to see if Buddhism is right for you? “Buddhism 101” will handily address both those questions.
