This book is an unconventional approach to Buddhist doctrine. It is brilliantly written with logical evaluation of Buddhist concepts with emphasis on suffering and "anatta" (non-self), the two pillars of Buddhist teaching. The author's ability to read the Buddhist scripture and extract what Buddha really meant is the greatest contribution. This Book is a 'must' for anyone with an open mind.
