This: http://www.scribd.com/doc/126595677/Bhikkhu-Bodhi-Tr-Numerical-Discourses-of-the-Buddha-Anguttara-Nikaya-Preview
is a preview to "The Numerical Discourses of the Buddha: A Translation of the Anguttara Nikaya" by Bhikkhu Bodhi,
and includes his 60 page intro, about another 60 pages of translations, and his thematic guide. Should be worth looking at.
ཨོཾ་མ་ཧཱ་ཤུནྱ་ཏཱ་ཛྙཱ་ན་བཛྲ་སྭཱ་བྷཱ་བ་ཨཱཏྨ་ཀོ་྅ཧཾ༔

The thousands of lines of the Prajnaparamita can be summed up in the following two sentences:
1) One should become a Bodhisattva (or, Buddha-to-be), i.e. one who is content with nothing less than all-knowledge attained through the perfection of wisdom for the sake of all beings.
2) There is no such thing as a Bodhisattva, or as all-knowledge, or as a ‘being’, or as the perfection of wisdom, or as an attainment.
To accept both these contradictory facts is to be perfect.

Why not just buy the book? It's already published, after all. :smile:
