    "words of wisdom?"

    The Sample is almost entirely an excerpt of the Dalai Lama's History. Near the end only one example of his actualy words of wisdom is read by the narrator and it was difficult to tell where the history ended and the quotes began until the narrator was halfway through the one and only quote you hear. The tone is monotonous. I would have preferred hearing the words from the Dalai Lama himself.

    "Very poor pronunciation"

    I was interested in purchasing this book, however, after hearing the sample and found the narrators inability for pronunciation I decided better of it.
