Book Review. ~ “What Do Buddhists Believe?”

What do Buddhists Believe?“What Do Buddhists Believe?” by Tony Morris, Bloomsbury Publishing USA, 2008 – Religion – 112 pages.

When I want to learn about a subject, I seem to go on a mission. I think, ‘what do I want to know?’, ‘what format?’, and ‘look for something readable’. ‘What Do Buddhists Believe?’ answered those questions with ease.

This book was an easy read and yet I came away with a better understanding of where I wanted to go on my journey of learning about Buddhism. It covers general Buddhist beliefs without being overly simplified. I would not recommend it to a person who has more than a general grasp of what Buddhism is for it really is the bare bones. Yet for those who want more than a ‘feel’ but not an in-depth of each tradition I  recommend it. Don’t think this will be the only book you will need to understand Buddhism, but it will be one you can pass on to your non-Buddhists friends when they have more questions.

  1. Thanks, Debra. I just finished reading a book about Buddhism around the globe:

    Buddha or Bust ~ In Search of Truth, Meaning, Happiness, and the Man Who Found Them All.

    It was not as “enlightening” as I had hoped it would be. 🙂

    • hmmm and with that title you would think it would be. 🙂

      Thank you for letting me know. 🙂
