Tired of being an armchair activist, Isabel Losada decides to take matters into her own hands. From the streets of London to the temples of Dharamsala, in this adventure, Isabel falls in love with a monk, impersonates a member of the Chinese army, starts an activist organization, breaks the law, puts lives at risk (including her own), and appears on the news around the world. In the end, she meets the Dalai Lama to ask him the crucial question, "Can one person make a difference?"

Customer Reviews of For Tibet, with Love

Charming Adventure

I strongly suggest you to read this book. She happens to be your funny, adventurer, wisdom seeker friend who shares a charming journey with you.

Truly Inspirational!

I was intrigued by this book. Having read 'The Batterea Park Road To Enlightenment' a few years ago, I thought it would be a good laugh! Knowing virtually nothing about the Tibetan situation, I wasn't sure what to expect. I found it spellbinding and totally inspirational. Isabel manages to be informative and funny, without trivialising the issues. Her passion is so infectious, I was inspired to read more about the Dalai Lama and Buddhism generally. In times of trashy novels, reality tv and celebrity worship, an author with something really meaningful to say, and who says it in a way which inspires people to listen and act, is a real talent. Read this book, it could change your life!

I loved this book!

I recently read 'For Tibet, with Love'...and LOVED it! It was posted to me by a wonderful friend in the uk, who just knew I'd adore it. I have a lot of Tibetan friends and have been lucky enough to visit places in India mentioned in 'For Tibet' transported me back...made me sad and angry at times...made me laugh with delight...and lifted my spirit and gave me hope. In fact it has inspired me to do something I feel is important but was avoiding because it felt too difficult. I love the way it is written, it was like listening to a dear friend share their story and journey, frustrations and dreams. I know its a book, but it feels more like a friendship. Its fabulous, I feel you'll be doing yourself a great service to buy and read this book!

utterly inspiring

if you have ever had one of those days when you just have to do SOMETHING, or you've ever asked rather embarrasedly (as i once did)'who exactly is the dalai lama' then this is the book for you. isabel's positivity and refusal to be static and moan about the state of the world while doing nowt is totally and utterly infectious. this is a book that says YOU CAN DO IT and goes on to illustrate this fact. a journey that takes you from a vague interest in the position of tibet and culminates in a meeting with the dalai lama cannot help but be inspiring and remarkable. isabel's style of writing, as in her earlier book 'the battersea park road to enlightenment' is fantastically accessible, while discussing a very difficult and often deeply disturbing issue she still manages to make it a greatly enjoyable and ultimately wholly inspiring read.go on read it, i'd be amazed if your perspective on what an individual can achieve isn't totally transformed for the better!

essential reading!!!!!!

Thank goodness there are people like Isabel in the world! This book is truly inspiring. Informative and funny, touching and determined, Isabel made me laugh out loud and made me cry but most of all she gave me hope. Something can be done to make this world a better place. It's easy to despair surrounded by the media today and yet there is also this book a shining example of courage, of faith in peace, and just how far aim and action can take you. Isabel should be proud of herself.
