The list author says: "I have enjoyed reading many books of the Dalai Lama and reviewing them here on Amazon over the years. The Dalai Lama's books are characterized by universality, simplicity, and humility. Some have express Buddhist content, while some are more general in character and teach what the Dalai Lama describes as "secular ethics" which can be shared by people regardless of religious orientation. Some of the books transcribe lectures or specific public teachings while others are written in collaboration with another author. These are books that I have found worthwhile and I hope you may find them so as well."
