Hello all,

Has anybody read "Selfless Persons" by Steven Collins?

And, if so, what do you think?

It has been years since I have read it, but it is good. He is a reliable sympathetic scholar of things Theravada.

Thanks Tilt :anjali:

I already have the book - one of those bought and set aside for when I have time. But I'll start this one soon, as it has the tick of approval.
