I truly respect his holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. He tries much, much harder than any other religious leader to try to truly understand science and to try to reconcile it with religious teachings. That said, in the end, he never quite bridges the gap. He spends whole chapters building towards a cohesive solution, only to bail out at the last minute and site historic texts as an escape route. It's still definitely worth a read by anyone interested in the science vs. spirituality debate, but don't expect to be blown away. In the end, he is unable to take the final leap to trust science, instead falling on spiritual intermediaries.
