Professional reviews

"Tenzin Gyatso, the fourteenth Dalai Lama, cannot be fully understood out of the context of current geopolitical forces and the political and spiritual status of Tibet. This context takes center stage in this authorized biography. Chhaya clearly admires the Dalai Lama and believes him to be deserving of reverence. Paul English's narration reflects, without overstating, the author's admiration and captures the general tone of veneration of the Dalai Lama's other admirers, whose observations form an important part of this book. English presents quotes by the Dalai Lama with a realistic accent that sets them apart from the general narration. Overall, English's engagement with the subject matter augments the clarity of his narration. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
