I'm only partway through, but it's clear that Rusesabagina is anything but ordinary. This is an incredibly listenable story of his life, the history of Rwanda, and the events leading up to the genocide of 1994. He has a broad view that is held up by all the details in the book. So far, he does more than relate the horrors; he offers ideas and actions people can take, ways of being so that other 'ordinary' people can save lives or even work to deflect hostilities before they grow into such violence.
