This review is from: Seven Years in Tibet (Paladin Books) (Paperback)
This is a great read about life in Tibet before it got truly opened up to the west and before the Dalai Lama's exile. If you've seen the film you know roughly what to expect, but I found myself enjoying this book more than the film itself. The translation is excellent and the style is immensely easy to read and gets you involved in the story right away. A great read about Tibetan life and culture, as well as a story of one man's spiritual growth and development.
