Title : The Life of the Buddha
Author : Bhikkhu Ñānamoli

The book was composed entirely from the texts of the Pāli Canon, (which is commonly recognised as) the oldest, most complete, and most original collection of the Teachings of the Buddha.  It portrays an image of the Buddha which is vivid, warm, and moving, and thus gives life to the narration.  This book can inform or inspire.
