Autobiographies are sometimes written too early in a person's life. Still, this work is a good reminder of what this man has been through, and as such, it should be used as a reference whenever liberals start gushing over the Chinese communist government. Don't fool yourselves. The Chinese government is ruthless. It says a lot about the Dalai Lama's advanced spirituality, that he can forgive some in that government for what they have done to Tibet and its people.
