TENZIN GYATSO, His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, is the spiritual and temporal leader of the Tibetan people. His tireless efforts on behalf of human rights and world peace have earned him international recognition, including the Nobel Peace Prize.
In this follow-up to Ethics for a New Millennium, H.H. Dalai Lama offers an inspired new take on a standard set of ethics for all humans, regardless of race, sex, or creed. Far more outspoken than ever before, his teachings are an urgent plea for all people to adhere to inherent human values. Seasoned performer Martin Sheen tackles the tough task of reading such a noble figure's work, and does so with tremendous poise and respect. Sheen's style is straightforward and personal, as if he's speaking directly to a single listener rather than an audience of millions. His narration is swift but appropriate, and Sheen captures both the Dalai Lama's wisdom and everyman approach to the material. This is an informative and thought-provoking listen that will appeal to listeners of every social background. A Houghton Mifflin Harcourt hardcover. (Dec.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
