This is an excellent exploration of the Dalai Lama and Tibetan culture in general, as well as a history of 20th century Tibet. It is well researched and full of interesting stories. This is for anyone who wants the backstory of this great man or for those interested in Tibetan culture. It is a rich and varied tale of a world far removed from 21st century America. The irony of the horror of the Chinese invasion is that the world benefited enormously from the diffusion of the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism and from the expanded role the Dalai Lama was forced into. ~ Reviewed by Chris Morrow
