9780060834524: A Beginner's Guide to Changing the World

Tired of being an armchair activist, Isabel Losada decides to take matters into her own hands. From the streets of London to the temples of Dharamsala, in this adventure, Isabel falls in love with a monk, impersonates a member of the Chinese army, starts an activist organization, breaks the law, puts lives at risk (including her own), and appears on the news around the world. In the end, she meets the Dalai Lama to ask him the crucial question, "Can one person make a difference?"

“...vivid, funny, heartwarming, delightful....It is a great read, a live teaching!” (--Robert Thurman, author of Inner Revolutions: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Real Happiness)
