"The Dalai Lama is one of the most significant religious leaders of our time. His religious spirit and leadership have endeared him to his followers and to those of us who call him our friend.

"A warm-hearted account of one of the greatest spiritual leaders of our time."-- Lord George Carey, former Archbishop of Canterbury

"The Dalai Lama's warm embrace of all humanity places him among the greatest spiritual giants of our time. As a Christian leader who has met him several times, I honour his remarkable spiritual journey and commend this new biography." -- Lord George Carey, former Archbishop of Canterbury

"You too can know him, the great prophet of compassion whose grace touches us all."-- bell hooks, Distinguished Professor of English, City College, New York, author and contributor to the Shambala Sun

"This biography presents a fascinating mosaic of His Holiness the Dalai Lama as a multifaceted individual, viewed from the perspectives of a wide range of people who have encountered him over the past seventy years. The picture that emerges is the epitome of a sublimely balanced human being: with open-minded intelligence and unconditional compassion, an eagerness to engage with the world and a love of solitary meditation, embodying qualities of nobility and humility, of mature authority and childlike humor and playfulness. He is a complex man - a statesman and a holy man - who thinks of himself as a simple Buddhist monk. He inspires us all to become better people and to treat each other with love and respect, as he does with everyone he meets."-- B. Alan Wallace, author of Genuine Happiness: Meditation as the Path to Fulfillment and President of the Santa Barbara Institute for the Interdisciplinary Study of Consciousness
