I'm just sharing a book for those with more muslims than buddhists near home.
The author "examines all the major schools of buddhist
thought as [he] understand[s] them."
Introduced by HHDL, this book looks like more than your usual Dawah from no-fly-listers excited by the worst in buddhism.

Please comment here on only the theravada dhamma in the book, not on Islam or comparative religion.

The book doesn't talk about rebirth, the six realms of cyclic existence, living skinhead free of beard, weapons and women so it isn't 100% Theravada Dhamma... second time i red it, not even 50%.
Quite interesting book by the way, thanks.
