Wow! Thanks Barry! I didn't realize he'd had a new book out.

I just read through the introduction at Amazon, and had been wondering how this book was different from his other collection, "The Hungry Tigress." In the foreword, he says that this collection basically has a lot more depth and focus in the commentary, and is the result of 20 or so more years of practice.


I received this as a review copy as well. Loved it, and can't wait to introduce my son to some of the jatakas.
