Since IlluminAsia posts have resumed after a hiatus, as a reader I would like to voluntarily remind everyone about Chris's recently published book The Light of Asia. It is available in a variety of formats. I bought the audio version and enjoyed it. On audible.com, The Light of Asia currently has two ratings at the time I submit this comment. I was the second person to rate it. Whether you buy The Light of Asia in audio or another format, I am confident that Chris would appreciate both sales and a positive rating.
