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!

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.

A must read!

Fascinating, funny and uplifting, this is an essential book for anyone who, like the author, has a deep desire to do something to change our world. It's a perfect example of how huge and daunting this task seems to be with the stubbornness of certain governments and endless complications, but that ultimately the most effective achievemnents come from the heart and require a bit of courage, daring and determination. It's also a comprehensible and interesting insight into the world of Tibetan Buddhism and Tibet itself, the very qualities of which (honesty, compassion and joyfulness) shine from each page. Isabel Losada is a true inspiration and example of how dedication,love, and a big ol' smile go a long, long way.

For Isabel, With Love

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. Also, by providing a lot of information about Tibet, you've also inspired me to find out more on my own. I love this book and have already recommended it to all of my friends and family. Enjoy!

Thoughts of a young Irish man

A little story: I was browsing through a bookshop in Cavan, Ireland one day last year when i picked up this book. I almost felt drawn towards it. (have you ever picked up a book and felt that way?) anyway i bought it and brought it home, when i finished reading it, i just sat back and thought, 'every book should be like this!' It is one of the best book i have ever read, i seriously cannot express how much i love it! I love the way it is written, the stories, the focus, and most of all the passion and heart with which it was written. And all that was packed into one book sitting in a bookstore in Cavan, Ireland which happened to be the book i picked up. If there is any sense of humanity/love within your heart then you will love this book... however if you are cold hearted with no care for anyone but yourself, you should also buy this book and i guarantee by the end of it, it will have touched your heart in such a way that you will never feel the same ever again. (Message to author: No matter how many copies you've sold, your book deserves way more attention. You are a fantastic and brilliant human being!
