Concise and No-nonesense
By Howard L. Carroll on September 10, 2015 Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Truth of Happiness Course is a concise and no-nonsense examination of the Four Noble Truths as taught by the Buddha 2,500 years ago. I bought the book and then signed up for the course, which added another major dimension to the material in the book. In addition, the author has a most informative web presence to carry the reader even deeper into the Dhamma.
John Haspel’s Version of Buddhism is “teach what the Buddha taught.”

John Haspel’s version of Buddhism is “teach what the Buddha taught.” No more, no less. If you are confused by Zen koans, put off by mysticism, and are not interested in turning philosophy into religion, this is the book for you. This book is a step by step plan for incorporating insight meditation and the eightfold path into your daily life. It is intended as the text book for the author’s on-line correspondence course but is still a very informative read by itself. Note I have not taken the on-line course but probably will in the near future.
