This is a very engaging read about an immigrant and restaurant worker at Windows on the World (the restaurant at the top of the World Trade Center) who rebuilds his life after September 11th and founds an organization that is revolutionizing the restaurant industry. The author does a great job of illustrating the inner workings of a community organization in an accessible and fascinating way, and the subject and co-author has a life story that could have been very ordinary, except for the path he chose to take to help other restaurant workers get the dignity and treatment they deserve.
