ok book. Found it to be preachy. Steps were provided on how to meditate and what to meditate on, explanation of cause and effect. Some of the inferences beyond that was hard to swallow, everyone was your brother, mother, sister, father at some point in a past life so love everyone (maybe even ISIS!!!)…. The Dalai Lama possibly is a good man (ask China) and wants good things for the people of this world however the path to enlightenment he is suggesting seems a bit shaky at least in my opinion but will meditate on that..:-).
