I came across this book at Norton Simon Museum. I was looking for an easy to understand, introductory book to Tibetan Buddhism and, instead, found a true gem. This book is concise and well structured. It covers some very important topics: How Buddhism came to Tibet, different schools of Buddhism in Tibet, the origin of Dalai Lama and Panchen Lama (two often misunderstood figures to the western society), symbols of Tibetan art in craft art, painting, architecture and a little bit of interior design, as well as yoga and tantric. I can't emphasis enough on the clear use of language, how all the ideas in the book are presented in a very simple and understandable manner.
I recommend this book to anyone who is curious to find out what IS Tibetan Buddhism.
