What a depressing book. If you're looking for heroes here, don't bother. I can't think of a single example of a major African figure who comes out looking good. Corruption, oppression, murder, and the deadliest war since World War II- that's what you'll find in these pages. Anything that begins in promise is doomed to failure, depend on it.
