This is an inspiring biography of Paul Farmer, humanitarian extraordinaire. From building a hospital out of nothing in nowheresville Haiti, treating TB victims in Russian prisons and Peruvian villages, to finding ways to lower drug costs for multiple resistant TB treatments.... The man must be exhausting to work with. A bit of a hagiography, this is nonetheless a good read that shows what one man can do to make the world a better place.
