Why Buddhism is True: The Science and Philosophy of Meditation and Enlightenment

I'm about 1/3 of the way into this wonderful book by Robert Wright (The Evolution of God and The Moral Animal)

Wonderful. He's examining Buddhism from an evolutionary psychology perspective, how the mind works to deceive us for it's own evolutionary goals, meditation, and what's really real!

Highly recommended.

A number of chapters open with a question, like the title. Does the author revisit the question, "What is the sound of one hand clapping?" In today's world, with fanatical Buddhism on the rise, the hand is clapping gun stock. I haven't gotten to the deadly serious part of the book yet, so please bear with me.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Evolution of God. I may have to give one this a spin. Interesting sidenote: I remember reading that Wright is one of Bill Clinton's favorite authors.
