    There’s a wonderful book by Venerable Bhikkhu Bodhi on the Eightfold
    Path for anyone who would like a more in-depth analysis. You can
    purchase it at Amazon or read online at Access To Insight and Google Books:

    http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/authors/bodhi/waytoend.html

    http://books.google.com/books/about/The_Noble_Eightfold_Path.html?id=–vzVMVPHJMC

    I find it to be one of the most beautiful and powerful books on the
    Buddhist Path ever written.

    I read the Access To Insight version back in the 1990s, I remembered it as being very good. Is it the exact same content as the printed hard copy?
