I love Buddhism and most things Spiritual but ironically I find most books on the subjects boring as hell. All the metaphoric and spiritual writing is good for quotations and little nuggets of wisdom but whole books I find it a chore to keep reading.
I liked Sam harris waking up, Buddhism plain and simple, Mindfulness in plain English and the Miracle of Mindfulness by Thich Nhat Hanh but books like The Power of Now by Eckart Toll and Buddhism without belief by Stephen Batchelor I found boring as hell.
Any other good books on the subject without too much jargon? There was one I had been recommended at a Sangha written by a guy who left Buddhism and returned to it years later but I can't remember the title if I could take a shot in the dark and ask you guys.
