it was amazing

An absolutely life altering book. This is the biography of Dr. Paul Farmer, who has been working tirelessly to bring health services to some of the most under served populations in the world. He recognized that poverty is tied directly to health and that you cannot merely treat illness, you have to clean up the drinking water and the sewer systems and provide housing and education... His work in Haiti, Russia, and South America created at model that other charities have adopted. Do yourself a favor. Pick up this book. (...and a portion of the profits go right back to the charity, so you can feel good all the way around!)
