by Isabel Losada, author of The Battersea Park Road to Enlightenment
What an intelligent, inspirational, warm and humorous lady. That’s my impression after reading A Beginner’s Guide…I liked Isabel so much I’ve added her to our fantasy dinner list.
The author guides us on her often frustrating, yet ultimately rewarding, journey as an individual trying to make a difference. Her subject? : Tibet.
I mostly smiled whilst reading this book, despite some harrowing tales (a small, but essential part of her tale) of Chinese barbarity and flagrant disregard of human rights. Isabel Losada writes extremely well and achieves a compelling story in addition to a fantastic vehicle for her www.actfortibet.com campaign.
Isabel’s journey sees her demonstrate outside the Chinese Embassy, tackle altitude sickness in Tibet, engage with all levels of authority in the UK, Tibet and India with a smile and serenity, get increasingly frustrated with western campaign organisations, organise her own crazy stunt and finally meet the Dalai Lama himself.
I wholeheartedly believe that Isabel wrote the book to get results. To help ordinary folks make a difference to an often forgotten cause. I’ve found myself referring to His Holiness the Dalai Lama on a number of ocassions since finishing the book – so much so that I crafted an email to that old favourite of mine – the Today programme – this morning and quoted the Dalai Lama.
I wish every author would write about their subject with such warmth, humour and compassion. It would make my reading pleasure 100 times more palatable.
Go visit www.actfortibet.com today and see what you can do to really make a difference – Isabel has also very thoughtfully compiled a list of reading and watching material to gen up on the subject, for those of you who want to find out more….
Of course, you can buy the book from Amazon here
