This book would be great for anyone with a sense of adventure and desire to help. I bet you will be contacting a Peace Corps re recruiter!
That quest led the author, Steve Hunsicker, to the Kingdom of Tonga, where he spent two years assisting the islanders with business development.
The book provides both an entertaining, behind-the-scenes look at all aspects of Tongan culture, as well as a reality check for anyone contemplating a stint in the Peace Corps. As Hunsicker quickly finds out, "no matter how prepared you think you may be, it is unlikely that your Peace Corps service will be anything like you expect."
Hunsicker's book is a poignant reminder that it's never to late to change one's path in life and achieve one's dreams.
