Book review: Mountains Beyond Mountains

Mountains beyond mountains is not just a book, it's a biography about a man whose life should be described as one of dedication and change. Dr. Farmer is a former American who grew up in a family that lacked many things but not perseverance. As a young man, he became a Harvard medicine student and somehow fell in love with Haiti while doing an internship there. What astonished me about his biography is the way he gave, without limits. He gave up his family, first love, comfort, and the upscale life he could have had as a recognized doctor in Boston to move to Haiti and provide medical care for those in need. I couldn't help but ask myself what am I doing to better the world? (the answer is simple, yet shameful) not enough in comparison to what he did and is still doing. If you are looking to be inspired, you should read this book.
