Bit of a hard slog to get through - I guess because of the interview format which made some of the information disjointed and repetitive. But that does not undermine the fascinating investigation into Aung San Suu Kyi; her political life and beliefs. Her integrity, dedication, calmness, charisma, intelligence and humility is very inspiring. I was also moved by the conversations with other leaders of the NLD movement who continue to be so passionate and committed in spite of the hostile situation in Myanmar. Finally I was really interested in the impact of their Buddhist beliefs - living in the here and now they all seemed at such peace in themselves, in their situation and towards SLORC. Very admirable.
