I was very intrigued by this book. The author was the Hospitality Manager, who protected more than 1200 people in a hotel that was made to accommodate 300, for the whole time of slaughter in Rwanda. I have heard this told from several view points. This is his story, in his own words. He doesn’t claim any courage or special talent. He showed how the skills he had developed as a manager and how the people skills he had developed as a man of his culture helped him accomplish this miracle. I was amazed how much work and negotiating it entailed to keep these people safe for such a long time. The "hollywood" movie version didn't begin to tell the details. I was also very interested in how his culture gave him a total different outlook on how to work with other people. I really respect this man and can see how I could gain from his experiences and apply his values to my own life. If you really want to see a man who did everything he could to save as many as he could during this time of slaughter - this is the man you should hear tell the story.
