The book deserves an award, 28 Feb. 2014
As an African myself, I found this book very brutal and honest. Richard managed to give a brief straight to the point summary on every chapter, allowing the reader to understand fully the past and present issues affecting different parts of Africa. Richard takes the reader through his African journey exactly how he saw things happening in the last 30 years working in Africa. Sometimes I felt angry reading the book but I agreed on almost everything written he wrote. I highly recommend the book for those who wants to understand of what Africa is all about: from famine, war, music, faith, strong communities, witchcraft to corrupted leaders with billions dollars, this book is a must have.
