I have had trouble considering Buddhism because I am put off by the trappings of the religion -- saffron robes, shaved heads, etc. Jack Kornfield's book has helped me to see the underlying principles of Buddhism by describing 26 of them in this book. What's cool is that these principles are useful even if you are involved in some other religion -- or no religion at all. Seeing the inner nobility in others, practicing compassion and mindfulness -- this is good stuff for all humans on the planet.
