As a twentysomething trying to figure out my career path, I found Farmer's overall message and his obvious passion very inspirational. Though the book deals with grim realities, Farmer offers refreshing and proactive ways to start to grapple with complex human rights issues. Though written from a physician-anthrolopologist's perspective and intended for health professionals/students, it's accessible for layreaders as well. The only weakness is the slight redundancy, since some of the chapters seem to have been adapated from Farmer's previous work and thus overlap considerably. Overall, highly recommended!

Once again Dr. Paul Farmer puts his finger on the pulse of the collective poor and marginalized and renders a nuanced analysis of the inequities in health care in the populations that he serves, namely, Cange, Haiti, Peru, Mexico and Russia.
