Greetings everyone,

I just thought I'd let you know that a small text I authored called Buddhism For The Modern Skeptic is now being hosted at

Just Be Good
http://www.justbegood.net/Downloads.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

(Just scroll down to the E-Books section to find it)

When developing this text, I was mindful to keep it generic enough so it's applicable (as far as I can make it) to all forms of Buddhism.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Hi Retro,

I skimmed this, and I bookmarked it so I can read in detail later. It looks marvelous, thanks so much!

Kindly,
Laura :)

Congratulations!

I took the liberty of announcing it at Dhamma Wheel too.

I just finished reading it the other day and it is great!

Greetings,

Thanks Laura, thanks David.

David ~ If it would slot in anywhere amongst your myriad websites, feel free to plug it in there too. There's certainly nothing exclusive about the distribution channels.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Excellent!

I was feeling bad that justbegood.net beat me to it, but now feel better that I can distribute it too! :twothumbsup:

Looks good after a very cursory read. But I find useful, even in a short work, an outline of contents at the beginning. Gives one a thumbnail of the key ideas.

Well at least now we have an alternative to authors like Stephen Batchelor :rolling:
