I met Sam Wazan at a book festival and was so inspired by his story that I purchased the book. His story of growing up during a civil war was both breathtaking and heartbreaking. I cannot imagine anyone living as he did, caught between enemy fire and yet attempting to live a normal life of going to school, having friends, applying for a job. His unbiased account of the three sections -- Muslim, Christian, and Jew -- shows that all are equally culpable, equally prejudiced, equally unwilling to hear the truth. Mr. Wazan is an advocate for peace and I herald his commitment. This book is a must-read if we hope to understand the conflicts in today's world.
