With characteristic humility, His Holiness the Dalai Lama begins this landmark survey of the entire Buddhist path by saying, "I think an overview of Tibetan Buddhism for the purpose of providing a comprehensive framework of the path may prove helpful in deepening your understanding and practice."

In this book the Dalai Lama delivers a presentation that is both concise and profound, accessible and engaging. As listeners explore Tibetan Buddhism more fully than ever before, they will find in His Holiness a great friend and authority.

Dense, heavy

This is a pretty heavy duty book on Tibetan Buddhism. HH the Dalai Lama is seen as popularizer of Buddhist theory and practice, but this book definitely is not for people who are new to the topic. It goes deeply into the details of what may be considered esoteric practices. I think it assumes a lot of background knowledge. Not a casual listen by any means. But if you're serious about deepening your understanding of Tibetan Buddhism, and you already have some context, you might appreciate this.
