For nearly 2,000 years, Nagarjuna's teachings have occupied a central position in Mahayana Buddhism. An essential part of the study and practice in the great Indian Buddhist monastic universities, these teachings were later incorporated into the Tibetan monastic programs that modeled their curricula on their Indian predecessors. In "The Middle Way, " the Dalai Lama offers a brief, brilliant, and complete presentation of the ultimate view of reality in the Mahayana tradition of Buddhism. The teachings are about the Buddhist view, yet the Dalai Lama presents them in a way that allows any interested reader to grasp this profound outlook on life. Like his many books on compassion, "The Middle Way" is vitally important and universally applicable. With its release, the Dalai Lama adds his wisdom teachings to the already established recognition of his incomparable compassion.

Not very well written. I've read many Buddhist books that are easier to follow, yet offer more insight than this one.

As a beginner to Buddhism I picked this off the shelf to begin with. It's quite confusing and hard to follow for a beginner but that's not to say if you have some background in Buddhism knowledge you won't enjoy the read. In my opinion an okay book.
