Synopsis:

One of the most acclaimed and perceptive observers of globalism and Buddhism now focuses on the work and ideas of the 14th Dalai Lama, as Iyer examines the spiritual leader's ideas as a politician, scientist, and philosopher.

About the Author

For over three decades, Pico Iyer, one of our most cherished travel writers, has been a friend to the Dalai Lama. Over these years through intimate conversations, he has come to know him in a way that few can claim. Here he paints an unprecedented portrait of one of the most singular figures of our time, explaining the Dalai Lama's work and ideas about politics, science, technology, and religion. For Buddhist and non-Buddhist alike, The Open Road illuminates the hidden life and the daily challenges of this global icon.
