    This well written medical biography of Dr Rick Hodes is an absolutely perfect and much needed dose of faith in humanity Dr Rick has cared for countless patients during his career, ranging from the poorest children in Ethiopia, to victims of genocide in Rwanda, to those suffering from famine throughout Africa A brief chronology of true altruism, this book succinctly and compassionately chronicles Dr Rick s accomplishments and struggles and also includes numerous mini biographies of the children whose lives have been changed forever through the efforts of just one man often with support of other experts throughout the world I feel that books like this are so vitally important in order to take us out of our small privileged lives, awaken us to the human sufferings in our world, and inspire us to act in the most generous ways we can Mrs Berger does a fantastic job in chronicling Dr Rick s work and giving genuine altruism a voice A

    amazing, singular, dedicated human being uncanny sensitivity and intelligence dr who went with the jewish joint as a dr to ethopia and ended up staying there to take care of kids who would otherwise have died from preventable diseases no longer seen in the western world, due to vaccinations he, now an observant jew, practices with no equipment, just a stethoscope, in an office next to mother theresa s mission a unique example of someone who could not stand idly by as others suffer needlessly.

    This is a fascinating account of the work that Dr Rick Hodes has done for the past 20 years in Ethopia Dr Hode s dedication to saving children s lives is inspiring and transformative His devotion, love and kindness reminds us that amid the most desparate circumstances, one person can make a big difference.

    Reminded me why I wanted to be a doctor.


  7. says:

    The author s obsession with her adopted son is deeply problematic Dr Hodes is certainty an interesting physician I wish the author dug deeper into his story.
