Despite the somewhat simplistic title, this is a very interesting book for someone who knows next to nothing about Buddhism. It's written in a question-and-answer format, and attempts to give a bare-bones rundown of what Buddhism is all about. Questions/answers range from practice to beliefs to philosophy to lifestyle choices, and the answers are written in an accessable, friendly style.

Excellent book for people curious about Buddhism. Written without technical language.

The book is written in question/answer format. It's not what people typically think of as a book - a very long FAQ pamphlet might be a better label. That said, I love the book. When I'm irritated or have a mind in chaos that can't otherwise focus (especially not long enough to read a book) I can open this book anywhere, start read anything and be reminded of where I want to be. It helps gently realign to a "Buddhist" mindset (at least what that means to me, no god or holy book required) so I can try again to be who I want be.
