Good introdutory books OTHER than G.K Gyatso Modern Buddhism

I'm not sparking a debate here. I began reading erm, troubling things, shall we say about the man. Whilst I have been told most of the knowledge in his introductory book "Modern Buddhism" is orthodox I would still like to find some different reading materials introducing Buddhism, especially geared more towards Mahayana Buddhism. I find Mahayana Buddhism most suited to my person but I would also like to compare view points and make up my own mind.

Any suggestions are greatly appeciated.

Namaste,

Joshua.
