A book about the science and philosophy of meditation is not going to be easy reading so I braced myself for a tough read. However, Robert Wright's "Why Buddhism is True," is a fairly understandable account of the art and science of meditation. What makes the book understandable is that Wright is down-to-earth. He associates with us the readers and laughs at himself. He does no took down on us and has an attitude of "If I can do this you can." Thus, the difficult subject becomes easy. I enjoyed reading it and look forward to getting down on the cushion. I may not find enlightenment but I expect to become happier and a better human being.
