"[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 "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."--Publisher's Weekly (starred review) "[A] skilled and graceful exploration of the soul of an astonishing human being."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)… (mais)

My big questions is “How do people like that become who they are?? The energy, focus, intelligence, drive, etc doesn’t just happen. Also, I really think Paul worked himself to death. I think he couldn’t even imagine ever ending his life’s work and the thought of running out of energy and slowly failing wasn’t part of his being. So he died in the field doing what he loved.
I've heard the distance between genius and insanity is a very thin line. Paul Farmer definitely vacillated between the two! ( )

Although I appreciate the message behind this book and the incredible story of this man’s work, the book was boring and tedious at times. I did highlight many quotes I liked, such as, “…paying attention to individual patients was a moral imperative.” (P. 146). Farmer’s commitment to being a doctor to his patients, individually, is inspiring and important. ( )

''Mountains Beyond Mountains'' is inspiring, disturbing, daring and completely absorbing. It will rattle our complacency; it will prick our conscience.

Beyond mountains there are mountains.
--Haitian proverb

. . . And right action is freedom
From past and future also.
For most of us, this is the aim
Never here to be realized;
Who are only undefeated
Because we have gone on trying . . .
--T. S. Eliot
"The Dry Salvages"

Six years after the fact, Dr. Paul Edward Farmer reminded me, "We met because of a beheading, of all things."
[Afterword] In June 2002, seven years after the death of Father Jack Roussin, WHO adopted new prescriptions for dealing with MDR-TB, virtually the same as PIH had used in Carabayllo
