I was stunned to find this "introduction to Buddhism" actually spoke very little about Buddhism as most of us understand it. It does not mention the 8-fold path. It does not mention the standard ideas that I thought were common to all Buddhists regardless of their own particular path. I cannot recommend it to anyone.
