This book delivers exactly what it says it will: the reality of relief aid. John Holmes uses his first hand experiences to explain the effects of inernational politics on helping those desperately in need around the world and the intense difficulty of putting the relief work into action. It is written so that even someone new to humanitarian work can glide through it.
Loved it. Simple as that. It has everything you need to keep you gripped: an mysterious and exciting lead character, plots, twists, obsession and obviously a good amount of love tales and violence thrown in. I would, and have, reccommend it to friends.
