This latest edition is simply a reformatting of my edition for easier reading as a PDF document. The previous PDF was formatted for printing as an A6 book, but this is formatted with a single A5 page to a sheet for reading on a computer.

One who understands Dependent Origination, understands the Buddha's teaching. One who does not, cannot understand the Buddha's teaching. Mostly, the misinformed students of Buddhism fall into one of two extreme views — eternalism or annihilationism. The self continues after death, or the self is annihilated at death.
After reading this book carefully, you should not need to ask again, “If there is no self, how is rebirth possible? Who or what is reborn?”
