Reviews

"A moving and thoughtful book that does not fear to challenge."--The Guardian (U.K.)

"In this honest and serious book of self-examination and critical scrutiny, Stephen Batchelor adds the universe of Buddhism to the many fields in which received truth and blind faith are now giving way to ethical and scientific humanism, in which lies our only real hope."--Christopher Hitchens

"[Batchelor] taps his committed thirty-eight-year personal Buddhist practice to inform the book's sense of wisdom, clarity and insight. . . . An emotionally detailed and compelling account."--The Huffington Post
