Hello, I am looking for good buddhist books in the mahayana/tibetan flavor. I am looking for books that kind of touch on everything. If you can suggest anything that'd be great! Thanks, Dan

This is a bio of the Buddha told with some editorializing, but mostly excerpts compiled from the Pali canon. This gives an excellent introduction to the personality of the Buddha, his basic ideas, and the movement he initiated. Highly recommended to newbies and old-timers alike.
