Re: NEW BOOK> A Critique of Western Buddhism: Ruins of the Real, by Glenn Wallis

Dear Charles,

Thank you for posting notice of my new book. I appreciate it. The last sentence in the first paragraph of the publisher's blurb should read: 

"Yet these preeminent human truths are universally fortified against in contemporary Buddhist practice, contravening the very heart of Buddhism."
