"Rinpoche clearly explains Dzogchen and then reveals in a simple and non-intellectual manner what is meant by the practice of Dzogchen. Rinpoche's explanations and analogies simply and convincingly map a path to the self-perfected."--John Tigue, Daemen College
"A fine introduction to Dzogchen for the Western reader."--"Tibet Journal"

I felt the author was more taking advantage of his position of respect in writing this book than sharing any true transmission of this precious teaching.
The book lacks depth or subtly, both of which the Dzogchen approach itself possesses in abundence. I felt the Dalai Lama's discources on Dzogchen surprisingly had far more transition to offer that this.
why worry about annihilation of self and annihilation of buddha nature (the great icchantika), it would be perfectly natural to ask the Truth, for a new self, a new nature. once one has come near to the end, one finds oneself back at the begging, but one has changed.
theres nothing at all to worry about, this normal mind is the way, ones everyday thought is the way, ones everyday life is perfectly enlightened. why worry about passions and defilements... you are already perfect... how could you not remain in a natural state? impossible.
you have already arrived, you always were perfect. naturally so. this is the teaching of Dzogpa Chenpo, where even defilements are tools for growth.
best wishes, Tom.
