    Tashi Tsering was a real Tibetan revolutionary with a story worthy of a film adaptation Upon finishing Goldstein s Tibetan Revolutionary The Life and Times of Bapa Phuntsok Wangyal , I ve completely hooked on his work irregardless of his obvious pro China stance on Tibetan issues.

    Compelling and often surprising read that made me hopeful making local progress one step at a time despite or sometimes because of our past pain is the way to make our marks on the world.

    An amazing memoir and a unique, complicated document offering an alternative to the aristocratic Government in Exile line of Tibetan historiography and memorialization The authorial voice constructed by the memoirist and his editors is generous and searching The story Tsering has to tell is genuinely inspiring and attains a universal dimension even as it is immanent to a highly specific social context As such I can t imagine anyone to whom this book should not be recommended Despite a misleading [...]

    Riveting, inspiring and informative This was the book that made the 22 year old me stay up all reading, fascinated by the remote and strange culture of Tibet from half a century ago and the breathtaking events that unfolded in the life of this Tibetan man Eight years later I am still deeply moved by his courage that had caused him to make those nearly inconceivable choices during one of the most tumultuous era of the Chinese modern history.

    Tashi Tsering s story is one that people should know about Instead of remaining a Tibetan in exile, he deliberately choose to return to China so he could help the under privileged Tibetans living under Chinese tyranny His survived prison and years of abuse during and after the Cultural Revolution but eventually made it to Tibet and started schools in rural villages A great story.

    This is a great book for anyone who truly wants to understand the situation in Tibet Of course, this is only one man s perspective, but he has seen a lot of the country and met many important people The only reason I didn t give 5 stars is because the American collaborators who did the majority of the actual writing made it very boring in style.

    An incredible 1st hand account of pre China theocratic Tibet, the invasion, Chinese occupation and the cultural revolution s toll on Tibet Highly, highly recommended Gives a truly different perspective than expected.

    For anyone interested in another view of Tibet China relations Not Tibet idealized, but a remarkably compassionate and realistic sensibility from Tashi Tsering, who embodies the very values of Tibetan culture the world seeks to preserve.
