    Overall

    I wish that I could rate this book twice. The first half of the book describes Dr. Farmer's childhood, the life choices he made and the strongly held beliefs that have guided him in his service to the poor. This first half gets 5 out of 5 stars.
    The second half is a current view of Dr. Farmer's day to day schedule. The writer follows Dr. Farmer as he travels between clinics in Central America, Peru, Russia and elswhere while engaging the Doctor in philosophical arguments about healthcare funding and politics. This second half gets 4 out of 5 stars.

    In the aftermath of his terrible war, Ender Wiggin disappeared, and a powerful voice arose: the Speaker for the Dead, who told the true story of the Bugger War. Now, long years later, a second alien race has been discovered by Portuguese colonists on the planet Lusitania. But again the aliens' ways are strange and frightening...again, humans die. And it is only the Speaker for the Dead, who is also Ender Wiggin the Xenocide, who has the courage to confront the mystery...and the truth.

    "A great book!"
    Overall

    If you enjoyed psychology class, sociology class, comparative religions, etc.... you'll like this book. It's a study of the tangled relationships, attitudes and morals of a small colony of humans that have settled on a planet where an indigenous species of intelligent life resides; the first intelligent alien life that humans have encountered since the Bugger wars 3000 years ago.
    This book is quite different from ENDER'S GAME. It isn't an action/adventure book with detailed descriptions of battle sequences. Rather it's an examination of our "human-centric" thought processes.
