Review

Jane Goodall, Ph.D., CBE Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace Angelina is living proof of the power we all have -- every one of us -- to make a difference. I was deeply moved by her descriptions of individual refugees struggling to live with dignity and hope, and found her personal commitment to be an inspiration. Angelina's journals document her awakening as a humanitarian activist and I hope they will move readers to act. I look forward to my continued work with Angelina on behalf of the United Nations.

While I've always felt Angelia Jolie was a superb actress, I wondered how much of her U.N. work was due to being a publicity hound. I came across this book in a store full of African crafts and was so fascinated with it that I came home and ordered it on Amazon. This book isn't a formally written account of her travels; rather, it's a collection of her writings in a personal journal written while on various U.N. missions around the world a couple of years ago. Her writing is casual, personal, and it is very raw and honest, obviously from the heart. I now have a new admiration for Angelina and her complete dedication to this cause. As a person who lived abroad for many years and traveled extensively in the third world and Africa, I was able to relate to to the accuracy of what she noted in her comments. I found the book interesting because it was an actual blow by blow journal of her experiences, impressions, observations, and her own reactions to what she saw on various trips. Very refreshing, and also very sobering at the same time. It's well worth a read for the content alone, and reading it will make you see Angelina in a totally different light. I now count myself among her admirers and I respect her intense involvement with the U.N. She is doing just as much to draw attention to these problems as did the late, wonderful Audrey Hepburn when she served in the same capacity in the U.N., and this is quite a compliment because Audrey was so truly wonderful in her own right. Angelina is a worthy successor, no doubt about it.

I hate to say it but before I read this book I was oblivious to much of the worlds sufferings. Now that I have read it I am now more aware of whats going on in the world, and I would like to take action and help out. Angelina Jolie has written something from her heart, not many books come from the heart. In this book you will read about the struggles refugees go through, and how much faith and will they have within themselves as they endure everyday hardships. 'Notes from My Travels' is very meaningful and it was easy to follow. I'm not very good with my memory when it comes to remembering things like statistics and facts but I find myself remembering almost if not all the facts within this book.

We should all be very blessed with what we do have, even if it may not seem like much, to another it could mean everything.

This book also shows that YOU CAN make a difference. Even in the simplest things like raising awareness to family, friends even strangers.

I would like to thank Angelina Jolie, for deeply inspiring me and opening my eyes.

- Cristina

Angelina Jolie takes you on a journey to see an another world, or let's say the other part of the world that we all have (at least most of us) haven't seen or even thought about.
You won't be reading a journal about any typical oscar winner actress but a true philanthropist.
Barbara Walters told her:" You can't save the world Angelina"
She replied: " yes I know."
Yes, she is not saving the world but she is making a difference.
Her book proves it, her travels have changed her and they may change you too.
Her new perspective of life is described in such simple words yet so full of meaning, they will take you into the profund depths of the world: its truth.
In other words, the book is amazing.
By helping others, she has helped herself: she is now a more reasonnable person and knew that life is not about thinking only about yourself but it is thinking about others. That way you know you are at least useful to yourself and others.
Anyways, the book is great!

Format: Paperback
In this written account of Angelina Jolie's early trips with the UNHCR, readers are given a first-hand glimpse at the strength and beauty of refugees from around the world. Jolie holds nothing back, writing with emotion, intelligence, and incredible insight as she describes the people whose suffering inspired her to become a UN Ambassador and donate more than $6 million -- as well as adopt a child,(...) from Cambodia. It is a must-read for Jolie fans as well as anyone who wishes to be more aware of the living conditions of third-world countries. Jolie eats and lives with these people, forgoing all Hollywood luxuries but at the same time knowing that she is barely making any sacrifices compared to how refugees must live on a daily basis. We literally watch as these courageous and inspiring people win her heart... and it's difficult to finish this book without being won over ourselves. One of the most beautiful women in the world describes the world's ugliest crimes against humanity and does so in a way that moves her readers to action. Her two goals are to better understand and to help bring awareness, and by the end she has more than met them.

It was a great experience. I felt I was in the field. I saw the children. I felt the pain and suffering. I felt cold and shivered. I felt the heat and the dust. I cried and smilled. At one point I felt I was exhausted from travelling so much.
There was something special, I think magical, about the way the book was written. It truely paints the pictures and creates the scenes for you. You live in the book.
I have grown because of this experience. Merci Angie ;)
