This book is a documentary of the struggles and triumphs of Dr. Paul Farmer and his relentless pursuit of helping the poor in Haiti with TB, H I V and other infectious diseases. It shows what one man can do with a group of followers that have a vision to make an impact on the lives of the poor in a desolated country. Haiti is one of the poorest of the poorest countries in the world with seemingly insurmountable barriers to overcome. But there is hope through the organization called Partners in Health that is making a difference in lives of the Haitian people. Read the story of this amazing person and the organizations he created to make a difference in the world. Get involved and leave a legacy of love for the poor.

What an admirable fellow, this Dr. Paul Farmer. My book club read the entire book. I cheated and read the "condensed" version.
I'm so glad to have read the book, and so glad that I didn't have to plow through additional details.
What Dr. Farmer has done in Haiti and worldwide is worthy of broadcasting.

This book is inspiring to read! It makes me appreciate more and more those who give their lives for others to see they receive adequate healthcare. Dr. Paul Farmer is an advocate for those without voice; those who are marginalized and have no means to cry out for the mercy of others! GREAT READ!!

It is a fantastic story. Really admirable work. I love the way the author writes. It is really straight up with some emotion and some facts. Amazingly interesting and quick read.

This new edition has been "Adapted for Younger Audience" and is a wonderful true story for Middle and High School Students to read. The Amazon header is not clear that this book is different from the original but still wonderful. Definitely recommend it.

**Content of this book is different than original text** I ended up having to buy the original version for school because it has more details and deeper conversations of the novels purpose; I thought I was buying a hard cover version not a different version. The "adult" content dealing with normalities of internal civil conflict weren't out of the ordinary- unfortunately- or largely unknown events in the first place so it is a little strange to me why this "young adult" version was necessary. This is the point of view from a person who has always been interested in humanitarian efforts and what's really happening in the world, though.

Good read for younger (middle school if students aren't advanced) adults, I guess. Text is large, seems double spaced, content/ flow is simplified.
