A very clear, concise explanation of Buddhist teaching without the usual preaching. Made me think about my life independently of Buddhism. A very tuned-in speaker.

Excellent introduction to the teachings of the Buddha. Very clear, direct and thought-provoking, with some light-hearted humor thrown in. As a Christian who until recently knew very little about Buddhism, I found it very illuminating.
