Much easier to get, much more up to date would be Peter Harvey's INTRODUCTION TO BUDDHISM. It is a balanced, well done survey of the history of Buddhist ideas and culture, and can be had cheaply used.

We will be able to find several books which show us te claim. But I never see a book that show me a proof, which support their claim.

For example,
There is a claim that Magadhi is similar with Pali.

This is a claim. We heard it everywhere.

Why you who claim such and such, don't just show us the example?

Don't show us just few sentences, but show us a variety of sentences which compare Magadhi and Pali. We don't need a rocket science to conclude for ourselves whether both languages are same or not, like what have been claimed.

Show us how it is pronounced as well.

Not all of us simply buy the claim.

Show us the proof.

If some of you know which book or source that can show me the proof, not the claim, I will really thanks to you Guys.
I am not here nor there.
I am not right nor wrong.
I do not exist neither non-exist.
I am not I nor non-I.
I am not in samsara nor nirvana.
To All Buddhas, I bow down for the teaching of emptiness. Thank You!
