Just started to read my way through "Theravada Buddhism" by Richard F. Gombrich and thought I would recommend it.

It gives really good insight into some history of Theravada Buddhism as well as helping one understand the society that the Buddha lived in.

The dogmatists have claimed to have found the truth, others say that it cannot be apprehended; the Sceptics continue the search.

“What should be done for his disciples out of compassion by a teacher who seeks their welfare and has compassion for them, that I have done for you, bhikkhus. There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19
