Default Looking For Book on Buddhism - OT

Can anyone here recommend a good basic book on Buddhism?

"Ocean", by Ken Tanaka (A Shin Buddhist minister)

Very "readable". A collection of his lectures; intended for laity and
non-Buddhists. Doesn't get into heavy philosophy and specialised vocabulary,
nor does he "preach". And, it's in modern, colloquial American English.

The Interreligious Council of San Diego has a basic text on major religious
groups, "Bridging Our Faiths", which has sections on Baha'i, Buddhism,
Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judiaism. All the sections follow the same
format, and answer the same "questions", so it's pretty easy to do a "compare
and contrast" on your own. It's published by Paulist Press, so if it isn't on
Amazon anymore, a Catholic bookstore should be able to order you a copy.

On line: www.dharmathecat.com is a pretty good site for basics, and has
commentary on the "lessons" by ministers and others of various faiths....
Haven't checked it in awhile, but they used to have some pretty good links to
"Buddhist humor", too. (Mostly dumb "Zen jokes"....).
"Simplexities" on
