In Mountains Beyond Mountains, Tracy Kidder manages to portray Dr. Paul Farmer in an astonishing, yet truthful, manner. While Farmer at times seemed almost impossibly kind and generous, I never once doubted his sincerity or legitimacy. Tracy Kidder effectively hooked me into the amazing life of Dr. Paul Farmer, a difficult feat to accomplish. I recommend this book to anyone who likes reading non-fiction, medicine, social justice, or biographies. You will be positively affected by this inspiring tale.
