"Sleeping, dreaming and dying" by the Dalai Lama et al

I did´nt enjoy this book so much. There is a lot of good points about western science and Buddhist psychology, but I found it a bit shallow - both about scientific views and the Buddhist views. I feel they never come to any conclusion about anything, but it´s informative as a general introduction and debate. There are some very interesting passages about subtle states of mind, but I wish for more. Worth the read of course.
