Buddhism Plain and Simple offers a lucid, straightforward treatise on Buddhism in general and on awareness in particular.

When Buddha was asked to sum up his teaching in a single world, he said, Awareness. The Buddha taught how to see directly into the nature of experience. His observations and insights are comprehensible, practical, and down-to-earth, and they deal exclusively with the present.

The longtime teacher of Buddhism Steve Hagan presents the Buddha's uncluttered, original teachings in everyday, accessible language unencumbered by religious ritual, tradition, or belief.
