An End to Suffering: The Buddha in the World

I've been listening to this interview with Pankaj Mishra, an Indian Journalist who live in London, on NPR about his commentary of the general failure of the western civilization to solve the problem of human suffering.

It has been quite entertaining and I am quite charged to read the book. This man seems like he is at peace with his ideas and doesn't want to push his thoughts through like most western commentators do. He seems to lay out his ideas serenely, almost casually. Inspiring.
