"Chan provides an insider's account of the spiritual master's teachings at venues large and small.... Leaving intact the Dalai Lama's distinctive English, Chan vividly conveys the world leader's intense curiosity, intelligence, explosive laughter, keen wisdom, and kindness; his account of the Dalai Lama's conversation with Archbishop Desmond Tutu crackles with energy. Throughout, His Holiness incisively conveys his core teaching that inner transformation is key to alleviating suffering and bringing peace to a violent world. He also listens intently to innovators who are committed to the same goals. Details provide immediacy; carefully placed background information gives context. These inspiring dialogues communicate His Holiness's worldwide appeal and essential commitment to compassion." -- "Publishers Weekly"
"Tales of kindness and understanding from the Dalai Lama...[Readers] will come away with a better sense of the importance of communication, forgiveness and empathy, regardless of the circumstances." - "Kirkus Reviews"
