ILLUMINATING THE PATH TO ENLIGHTENMENT, which is his commentary on the small Lamrim of Je Tsongkhapa and Atisha's Light on the Path. Not a big book, less than 200 pages, but covers the basics.

It may be online too.
Manjushri is the hallowed Dharma, the ruler of the Dharma, the shining one, the superb illuminator of the world;
He is the powerful lord of Dharma, the king of the Dharma, the one who shows the most excellent pathway of mind. Manjushri-namasamgiti

Hurrah :) thank you for posting. . It sounds wonderful, will look for it online sometime today.

My present one is Buddhism in Tibet; a whole lot of wonderful stuff in there, it is a fairly bit advanced. . . My own studies, I came to the Dalai Lama last in my line of studies, pretty much. . . it was interesting, and it worked out perfectly. :) (in this book also, an emphasis on concentration)
