A very interesting book.

Having only read a little bit about Buddhism online, I was excited to read this to get more of a feel of the teachings. I found many things easy to agree upon and other aspects a little bit more faith-based, but in whole I found it fascinating. I think I came away from this book with more of an open mind towards certain things, and has led me to think about things a little differently. I enjoyed how he referenced modern psychology and science a bit, but I wish that had maybe been fleshed out a bit more. There was a lot of repetition in this book and it made it kind of slow to read and pretty tedious at times. Overall I recomend it to people who are interested in knowing more about Buddhism, Tibet, and The Dalai Lama.
