Best starting book about buddhism for secular westerners?
I'm sorry if this gets into the wrong section but. I often do get the question from friends and people around me about what is a very good starting book about buddhism, a softcore one. And I'd take a guess that it needs to be very down to earht (not 20 pages at the start about emptyness [happy]), secular (nothing about the religions parts), just the philosophy. Something that explains very simple and not to hardcore about no-self, impermancence and suffering.
There must be at least a couple of these?
