Hi James - I really enjoy reading your blog. No doubt you've been asked this questions dozens of times...

Could you recommend a book that's a good introduction to the Buddist path please?

Thanks

Erin:

Sorry it's taken me awhile to respond. We went for a week to Costa Rica for our 10th wedding anniversary. Then I got a nasty virus.

Anyway, I would suggest "The Heart of the Buddha's Teachings" by Thich Nhat Hanh, "Buddhism Is Not What You Think" and "Wanting Englightenment is a Big Mistake" by Seung Sahn.
