  該書去年在台灣出版後,兩周內即躋身金石堂暢銷書排行榜,後再刷六次;英文版Witnessing History由悉尼最大的出版商、《魔戒》的原始出版者Allen & Unwin出版後亦持續熱銷,三個月內再刷兩次。
  My name is George Chami. I‘m of Lebanese background and have been in Australia for 20 years. My wife is Anglo Australian and a non-practitioner.
  Lee introduced me to Falun Dafa in late 2000. I have been a practitioner ever since. I must admit I went through a phase where I was having some doubts. The internet has also added to my confusion as it took me a little while to realise that the Chinese Communist Party and some of its followers have created a number of websites that spread doubt and hatred against Falun Gong. I try to do the exercises at home whenever I can and most importantly I do my best to live according to the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance.
  In late June, I read in the Sydney Morning Herald a review about Witnessing History and your dreadful ordeal in China. I bought and read the book and it broke my heart! I want to kowtow with a bleeding heart to you!! Your sad story was a wake up call for me and had a devastated effect on me. I have worked for 10 years (1993-2003) with refugees where I was exposed to lots of human suffering but nothing of the kind that you and other fellow practitioners had experienced. Your book left me depressed for many weeks although I have never suffered from depression before and it wrapped my whole being with sadness at the cruelty you and other fellow practitioners had to endure.
  Until then, I had not given much thought at all about my fellow practitioners in China and what I could do to alleviate their suffering or at least highlight their plight to the world.
  I thus see it my duty to clarify the truth. Your account of events in Witnessing History is so powerful that it can move rocks and shake mountains. I strongly believe it is an ideal tool to clarify the truth.
