Recommends it for: people who want to know about shangri-la
First I noticed the book was full of colour, different format than other travel book I came across. Laurence found the Shambala Sutra -an ancient script about journey to Shangri-La. Laurence set the journey as part of TV documentation. Interesting story but lacked of the details about places and the journey. Very good photos indeed specially about nomaden people in Himalaya.
