I would especially recommend this book for people who are already students in one of Trungpa Rinpoche's lineage and so will appreciate the detail this adds to their understanding of that lineage. (And will also already be familiar with his quirky style.) I also think this would be of interest to students of Tibetan Buddhism more generally, as it sheds some interesting light on the cultural context of the practice and view of the tradition.
