A book you can use over and over again, about 100 some lists, with the
most important lists explained in detail. Very good reference.

Wonderful explanations of the Buddha's lists. The author explained
it extremely well. I love the use of plain english and putting the
explanations in language anyone can understand. The author is a scholar and
highly educated, but unlike other scholars who write books, this author
wrote in plain language, easily understandable and digestable. I highly
recommend this book to anyone seeking the Buddha's wisdom or anyone who just
wants a better understanding of the Buddha's teachings.

This book is a valuable reference. I refer back to it all the
time. I even keep a copy next to me when I meditate.

I have this author's other dharma book, Right Understanding in
Plain English and this Buddha's Lists book is even better. It has more
information, is much longer, and more insights.
Jon (Albuquerque, New Mexico)
The author has read through and cites numerous Buddhist books,
including the scriptures of Buddhism. He has sifted through all of that
material and presented an overview and analysis not found in other Buddhist
books. In effect, the author has done all the research and you get to see
the results without having to go through all of those other books and the
Buddha's discourses. The scriptures of Buddhism are too long to go through.
In this book the author does all the work for us and presents Buddhism in
easy to understand terms and backs it all with science and scientific
method. Excellent, now I don't need to read much else on Buddhism unless I
have the time!

You were so kind enough to send me this dharma book at no charge
as I am an indigent inmate. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’m on my
third reading of it right now, then I’m sharing it with my Buddhist Study
Group we have here in prison.

It is one of the best books on Buddhism I have read. It has
insights I’ve never seen before in Buddhist literature.
