Synopsis
'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 "A Beginner's Guide to Changing the World - 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 "A Beginner's Guide to Changing the World - For Tibet with Love" celebrates the fact that we can make a difference.

I enjoyed the book very much. Losada's writing style is so natural and funny at times that you think she's talking to you. I never felt lectured, quite the contrary, similar to Leo Hickman's "A Life Sripped Bare" she is exploring how to do the "right thing" not leaving out the disappointments and frustrations but never giving up.

If there is interest I will send it into the world as a bookring.

I am the type of woman who behaves and thus never makes history. It is therefore quite interesting to read about how a woman finds a cause she is passionate about and goes on to become an activist and does crazy things to promote it. In the first part, I don't know if she was attempting to be humorous, but she appeared so naive and cheeky; also she made it sound like the Chinese invasion of Tibet was the only atrocity in the world and the only torturing happening on earth, and I didn't quite like it. The ending paragraph is nicely written though and the book and video list at the end of the book is excellent.

This is now heading to the next reader. Thanks for sharing the book.

I am ready to send this on, and am PMing yayajanuary for ann address.

I enjoyed reading ab out how Losada's curiosity and willingness to learn more about the situation in Tibet informed her activism and fueled her passion to make a difference.
