As with the other books I've read by this author, it never ceases to amaze me how little I know about what has gone on on this planet whilst I've been alive, let alone what happened before I arrived. Keane's straight from the heart stories astonish you - despite avidly following news and reading newspapers, you do not realise how many of the world's events just pass us all by. I have discovered some truly horrific things about the human race as well as some touching stories. Keane is a true storyteller as well as a journalist, and this book links the two styles of writing well. This book takes you from Rwanda to the old Yugoslavia with snippets from Keane's time here - moving, interesting and inspiring.
