Grade 8 Up Metcalf straddles an interesting line with great success avowedly evangelistic, his book nevertheless repeatedly reminds readers that Buddhism in general and the specific form of it embraced here are not likely to appeal to everyone As such, the tone is both enthusiastic and testimonial without being pushy or in your face Whether discussing home and the family, school, self image, sex, or drugs, the author s advice aims always at what is healthy and what reduces the amount of suffering in the world Unlike other guides to living produced from a religious viewpoint, this book eschews discussion of morality and hews close to a practical line not what is good but rather what is good for you The author also emphasizes the necessity of self awareness and rational independent decision making over rote following of rules a stance that will raise hackles in many communities when the subject is teen sexuality or substance abuse Metcalf also surveys the life and basic teachings of Buddha and makes recommendations for those who want to attempt to walk the path of Buddhism He examines various schools of the religion, gives instructions for types of meditation, and explains that incorporating Buddhist principles into one s life need not mean a conversion to Buddhism or renunciation of other religious affiliations While its frank and nonjudgmental approach to certain areas of teenage life will likely lead to censure in some corners, Buddha in Your Backpack is flush with good advice, sensibly given As such it should prove useful both to students interested in Buddhism and to others who simply need good counsel In fact, Metcalf s approach is so down to earth and inviting that many adults may sneak it off the shelves for themselves.Coop Renner, Blackshear

that wins its hipness the hard way by using good humor and the wisdom of a 2,500 year old man After introducing Siddhartha Buddha by focusing on his childhood, Metcalf outlines the four simple truths of Buddhism, using them as the foundation for his guidance It s all about learning to live with dukkha, or suffering, whether that means overprotective parents, bratty siblings, or drama queen pals Taking inner action to resolve your outer problems, Metcalf says, is often but not always the best solution because teens like the rest of us often find themselves in situations of powerlessness It may sound boring, but Metcalf makes Buddhism fun and funny Dukkha happens without shying away from difficult issues like drugs and sex His refusal to condemn such supposed vices might trouble some parents, but teens will treasure it This is the rare advice book that kids won t be ashamed to have in their backpacks John Green Copyright American Library Association All rights reserved Laurie
