Good historical overview, but Waddell's prose drips with ethnocentric contempt and judgement, which is extraordinarily inappropriate, off-putting, gross and downright disgusting. His contempt for Eastern religion is not even REMOTELY disguised or euphemized. An unpleasant, if necessary, and dated account.

I wasn't able to finish this, but I'm keeping it around for future reference.
What I did get out of the first 60 pages is - Tibetan Buddhism is really complicated.
