    Description

    “[A] masterpiece...an astonishing book that will leave you questioning your own life and political views...Kidder opens a window into Farmer’s soul, letting the reader peek in and see what truly makes the good doctor tick.” (Nicholas Thomas, USA Today)

    In medical school, Paul Farmer found his life’s calling: to cure infectious diseases and to bring the lifesaving tools of modern medicine to those who need them most. Tracy Kidder’s magnificent account shows how one person can make a difference in solving global health problems through a clear-eyed understanding of the interaction of politics, wealth, social systems, and disease. 

    Profound and powerful, Mountains Beyond Mountains takes us from Harvard to Haiti, Peru, Cuba, and Russia as Farmer changes people’s minds through his dedication to the philosophy that “the only real nation is humanity”.

    Praise for Mountains Beyond Mountains

    “A true-to-life fairy tale, one that inspires you to believe in happy endings... Its stark sense of reality comes as much from the grit between the pages as from the pure gold those pages spin.” (Laura Claridge, Boston Sunday Globe)

    “Stunning... Mountains Beyond Mountains will move you, restore your faith in the ability of one person to make a difference in these increasingly maddening, dispiriting times.” (John Wilkens, The San Diego Union-Tribune)

    “Easily the most fascinating, most entertaining and, yes, most inspiring work of nonfiction I’ve read this year.” (Charles Matthews, San Jose Mercury News)

    “It’ll fill you equally with wonder and hope.” (Cathy Burke, People)

    Commentaires

    "In this excellent work, Pulitzer Prize-winner Kidder immerses himself in and beautifully explores the rich drama that exists in the life of Dr. Paul Farmer…Throughout, Kidder captures the almost saintly effect Farmer has on those whom he treats." (Publishers Weekly)

    "[A] skilled and graceful exploration of the soul of an astonishing human being." (Kirkus Reviews)

    "A fine writer and his extraordinary subject: Tracy Kidder, in giving us Paul Farmer, lifts up an image of hope - and challenge - that the world urgently needs. Simply put, this is an important book." (James Carroll, author of Constantine's Sword)

    An inspiring story of an inspiring man.

    I now have a new hero. The story is well lived and well told. I am inspired to spend more time in communties with the people I want to serve. I was reminded of the best things in life and the greatest (most worthwhile) struggles. The book is truely touching. Farmer is a reasonable man to be considered an ideal.

    A necessary history lesson, also lovely biography

    Good narration. Story gets a little drawn out regarding the writer's praise of Dr. Farmer. Overall, the book flowed well, and was very illuminating about public health in Haiti and other areas afflicted by TB outbreaks during that time frame. A story everyone should know about.
