For Tibet, With Love

Dalai_Lama_Isabel_Losada

'Sometimes you just have to do something, don't you? Sometimes an injustice comes along and you think 'No, this cannot be', and rather than just turn off the TV, you know it's time to act'

So begins Isabel Losada's extraordinary For Tibet, With Love in which she explores whether it's possible for an ordinary person to change the world, just a little, and if something so serious can be achieved with joy in one's heart. From visits to Nepal and Tibet, to meetings with the Chinese ambassador and Tibetan awareness-raising groups, Isabel single-handedly hatches a stunning PR coup involving Nelson's Column, a 15 metre banner and a base-jumping parachutist that captured headlines worldwide.

And then she meets the Dalai Lama...Warm and funny, moving and thought-provoking, the astonishing For Tibet, With Love celebrates the fact that we can make a difference.

Reader Reviews

This book has inspired me to be kind to others and to recognize the different layers of kindness. It has helped me to see strangers as people rather then shadows that bump into me on the subway.

What a powerful effect this book had on me - whilst informative and maintaining a lightness dealing with serious issues.
