During college and afterward, he traveled to the world's trouble spots, working in refugee camps, serving the sick and the poor on four continents, from Gaza to Croatia to Mother Teresa's home in Calcutta, among others.

    Where does Hard Measures rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
