One of things that strikes me from reading a book such as this is that it tends to make any immediate personal difficulties recede in comparison to the array of challenges faced in the field by the MSF staff and the populations they assist. I am not a donor to MSF, though I can appreciate their work. The book is by no means an attempt to belittle or guilt trip the reader.
It does cover a range of facets involving life in MSF. The types of people it attracts, the lifestyle of volunteers, and how they have trouble recuperating and readjusting to life at home after their experiences in the field. The final chapter sums up the viewpoint of the organization well as they accept the Nobel prize.
