Yet another attempt to present a Buddhism that is divorced from its underlying supernatural elements (Karma, Samsara, Reincarnation,) and tell modern people what they want to hear.

Well written with a good balance of history, philosophy, and scientific research. This also has some example guided meditations that are a good extension to the material.

A wonderfully accessible and well-written book on the science behind meditation and mindfulness. Each chapter takes the history of the Buddha and Buddhism and makes it approachable, while also making the science understandable. Interspersed with each chapter and theme are meditations you can try at home. Recommended!
