Eileen witnessed some of the worst days of Afghanistan’s deadly factional conflict and not only survived but assisted thousands of Afghans whose life had been turned upside down. Managers and field workers alike should read Eileen’s highly personal account and then listen to each other better.

Eileen’s book took me back... her amazing ability in taking notes and accurately remembering the details of all the events... a way of tribute to those aid workers who work under very risky and difficult conditions in different problematic parts of the world.
