Críticas

I have been pretty sniffy about graphic novels but, I must admit that the factual application of the technique, as used by the 'for Beginners' series, works admirably. This book,as with others from the series which have crossed my reading table, is deceptively simple: it is written in a slightly jokey fashion and every page is a sketch with a few tight notes around it. This tome is quickly read but, certainly supports a second reading. It is packed with as much information as one would expect to find in one containing ten times the 169 pages actually occupied.

This book takes us from the Buddha all the way through to modern day Buddhist theory with more than enough detail to satisfy casual interest, or to provide a solid basis from which the more serious student may launch an investigation of this ancient philosophy.

I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone wanting to acquaint themselves with Buddha.

'Buddha For Beginners' is a very entertaining book.

This is a very pleasant book to look at and to read through. It is very visually oriented with very good supporting text. There are references to symbols in all the major religions and to many mythologies. It whets the appetite for further study. 2-4 pages are occupied with various themes like: the world soul, the soul in the body, the sacred earth, soul realms, faith, etc. Each double page has 3-4 color photographs with explanatory text.
