For Tibet, with Love : A Beginner's Guide to Changing the World
'Sometimes you just have to do something, don't you? Sometimes an injustice comes along and you think 'No, this cannot be', and rather than just turn off the TV, you know it's time to act' So begins Isabel Losada's extraordinary FOR TIBET WITH LOVE in which she explores whether it's possible for an ordinary person to change the world, just a little, and if something so serious can be achieved with joy in one's heart. From visits to Nepal and Tibet, to meetings with the Chinese ambassador and Tibetan awareness-raising groups, Isabel single-handedly hatches a stunning PR coup involving Nelson's Column, a 15 metre banner and a base-jumping parachutist that captured headlines worldwide. And then she meets the Dalai Lama...Warm and funny, moving and thought-provoking, the astonishing FOR TIBET WITH LOVE celebrates the fact that we can make a difference.

What an incredible book this was! I loved reading Isabel's descriptions of her travels as well as the path she took in trying to make a difference for the people of Tibet. It's completely raised my awareness on a subject that I knew very little about, and I'm horrified by what I've learned regarding China and Tibet. Isabel deserves praise, not only for bringing this subject to the forefront, but also for trying to make a difference. This book will inspire you, and if you let it, it can change your world. At the very least, you will never look at China in the same way again.show moreby Liza Farachdel
