"Buddhism: The Essence" by David Tuffley

Synopsis – (from

The distilled essence of Buddhism in plain English. Contains the essential truths that you can apply in your life.


Rating: 5 out of 5

Genre: Beliefs (Buddhism)

It may seem strange for me to give such a high rating for a book that is only 33 pages. I do have my reasons.

First of all, this book is a simple introduction to bits of Buddhism. It is not meant to be a full explanation. It is simply a taste of what can become a full way of living. Second, it is only 33 pages. What do you expect to get from a short book?

Anyone looking for a lengthy explanation, this is a never-read.

It shows you "The Essence" of Buddhism. It also does not claim to explain it in its entirety or as much as one could explain something like this.

If you are looking for something new or different for what ever reason you are looking, this is a must-try. It is short enough to hold your attention and explains quickly the basics of this belief/way of living.
