Thank YouI have yet to read this, but want to express my gratitude in providing this book at no cost~.Score: 5/5

Changed my thinkingGreat at explaining Buddhism and applying it to modern day life. Can be a bit repetitive, which worked for me to understand clearly and in depth. But for those who are advanced readers I can see this being a bit annoying and hard to get through..Score: 3/5

AmazingI would recommend this book to anyone interested in enlightenment, finding happiness, or just curious about the Buddhist religion. Although I am not Buddhist, and still not after reading, I found almost if not every page helpful in my daily life. The ideas of this book were supported by comprehensive yet subtle examples that make understanding the teaching easier. There were times when I was confused by the complexity of the ideas but reading forward never led me to more confusion-- it lead to further knowledge and understanding. I am grateful to have read this book. Very easy read aside from the names references..Score: 5/5

Clear and compassionateA book to return to again and again! I feel very fortunate to have found this path..Score: 5/5

Excellent guide for beginners and experienced practitioners alikeValuable tool for both experienced and inexperienced practitioners, and it provides motivation and inspiration for daily practice. It's starts a little slow and the first half may seem a little dull for new practitioners, but the second half discusses emptiness, and it's importance to practice, in a wonderful, direct, relatable, and inspiring way..Score: 4/5

PerfectThank you so much for making this available to everyone. I have been studying the Lost Books of the Bible, Judaism, and now Buddhism. I am doing my best to take in all of it but am finding that Buddhism is really fitting for me and very understandable. Look forward to reading and studying the next two volumes!!!.Score: 5/5

Powerful and beneficialI treasure Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's teachings and am amazed (but not surprised) that he is offering this book for free so that countless living beings may benefit from the pure Dharma within it. I have many of his books and find the teachings in Modern Buddhism to be consistent with his other books, but there are some subtle, beneficial differences in this book that are not in any of his other books. In his books, he seems to be relating to people of the current time. He seems to constantly hone and clarify the teachings so that they are easy for modern people to read, understand, and put into practice. Because the eBook is free, I have found it to be very easy to "give" to others who might not otherwise have access to the book. Many people I know have found this book extremely helpful in their daily lives. I highly recommend it and rejoice that it is free for everyone..Score: 5/5

Good book to read when you have hard timesI had a few hard things happen where wife left but without taking anything, left her daughter and mother with me. Went to one income and was stressing on having to sell stuff I did not want to let go of. Then I fractured a bone in my foot in the middle of this and was tired of the typical excuses to try and forget over night but yet wake up in deeper sorrow. I found this book and it showed me how all I was attached to was my issue and all through-out my life I have always have had hard times. I want to read the second and third book and learn to meditate - this is my answer since I was born..Score: 5/5

Fortunate to have found thisI am lucky to have first experienced Geshe Kelsang's teachings via the New York Meditation Center. A few years later I had stressed enough and wanted to find some peace- I am fortunate to have stumbled onto this book while viewing the Meditation Center's website. I have been experiencing a peace of mind that I haven't known in decades..Score: 5/5

So clear and practicalA truly clear and practical explanation of Meditation and Buddhism. This book has made it easy to gain experience with these meditations.
