“Wright (The Evolution of God, 2009) leads his readers on a scientific search for the truth of Buddhism….[A]n often witty…guide who eschews what he calls the ‘supernatural or more exotically metaphysical parts of Buddhism’…Wright has a talent for bringing clarity to this and what could otherwise be his subject’s murkier aspects.”
