Although Dr. Paul Farmer is only human and has faults as other reviewers have pointed out, his sacrifice, love and advocacy for the poorest of the poor in Haiti moved me in a way I never would have thought possible. Even more powerful was the way Tracy Kidder made me acutely aware of the terrible conditions and suffering of the impoverished people in Haiti and Peru. I wish everyone in the developed world would read this book and, like me, have their eyes opened to the terrible conditions in which so many people live. This book gave me a desire to relieve suffering wherever I find it and to do something for people in Haiti and elsewhere who can do very little to help themselves.
Good reading of a great book. My 6 year old son loved it. We listened to it in the car and it entertained the adults as well.
I have listened to 4 or 5 biographical books offered by Audible about Einstein. This one is best as an introduction to the man and his theories. Fascinating account of a complex man. I felt this one was best also for a general audience, as it does not require a deep understanding of physics.
