Review

"Craig and Marc Kielburger's work through Free The Children has inspired tens of thousands of people to bring about the changes they seek in their own lives and in the world."—Margaret Atwood, Author

About the Author

Tenzin Gyatso, the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, is the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people. Born in northeastern Tibet in 1935, he was as a toddler recognized as the incarnation of the Thirteenth Dalai Lama and brought to Tibet's capital, Lhasa. In 1950, Mao Zedong's Communist forces made their first incursions into eastern Tibet, shortly after which the young Dalai Lama assumed the political leadership of his country. In 1959, Chinese forces occupied the city, forcing His Holiness to escape to India. There he set up the Tibetan government-in-exile in Dharamsala, working to secure the welfare of the more than 100,000 Tibetan exiles and prevent the destruction of Tibetan culture. In his capacity as a spiritual and political leader, he has traveled to more than sixty-two countries on six continents and met with presidents, popes, and leading scientists to foster dialogue and create a better world. In recognition of his tireless work for the nonviolent liberation of Tibet, the Dalai Lama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989. In 2012, he relinquished political authority in his exile government and turned it over to democratically elected representatives. He is the author of numerous books, including "The Good Heart", "The Meaning of Life", "The World of Tibetan Buddhism", and "The Compassionate Life".

As a parent, I was floored by this book. It's an accessible read that doesn't try to hammer home proper child-rearing habits. It tells beautiful, real stories that all have a message that is better suitable for learning. It's a moving read filled with beautiful photos and excellent design.

And the best part is that this guide works. It's a simple philosophy for your kids to get involved with actually caring and sharing compassion. It's not complex, but understandable and honest. I can't say the same for most parenting books I've read. This book stands out on its own.

A refreshing read for all parents -- young or old. Good stuff, Craig and Marc!

While I take no issue with the Kielburgers and their philanthropic pursuits, this book (and even their column in the G&M) is a little hard to swallow. My biggest complaint is that it is basically peddling their foundations ('Free the Children' and 'Me to We') every few pages, whilst giving themselves a big old pat on the back for their good work. It's almost narcissistic.

Look we get it, you did a good thing, you had wonderful parents (grandparents), you raised the moral/ethical bar, etc. etc. ... Let's get that over in the introduction and speak to the book's purpose without constantly going back to re-affirming your own worth. It's like an Oprah interview (no wonder she endorses Kielburgers...) where regardless of the guest and value of their comments, it always comes back to her.

It's too bad really as the book is slick - very nicely laid out with some lovely contributions from a number of well-known activists. (I hesitate to use celebrity, even though some are, as it cheapens the contribution just by mere association with a machine aka. Hollywood that feeds society's consumerism, indifference and fantasy.) Some of the content is very good too. However, it's just too bad we can't remove the Kielburgers from their own book.

Craig and Marc Kielburger do it once again! They write from where it counts: the heart and experience. You can tell they did their research in this beautifully designed book. It works best on a coffee table, where you can just pick it up from time to time and get lost in the stories of parenting and celebrities. I was impressed by the number of celebs in this book too. Like Jane Fonda, the Dalai Lama, Mia Farrow and Jane Goodall.

If you love Craig and Marc's work with Free the Children, you'll love this next addition!
