From the Publisher
Three years ago, award-winning actress Angelina Jolie took on a radically different role as a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Here are her memoirs from her journeys to Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Pakistan, Cambodia, and Ecuador, where she lived and worked and gave her heart to those who suffer the world's most shattering violence and victimization. Here are her revelations of joy and warmth amid utter destitution--compelling snapshots of courageous and inspiring people for whom survival is their daily work--and candid notes from a unique pilgrimage that completely changed the actress's worldview -- and the world within herself.

this book was great. it was very informative and will help people realize that there is another world out there where everyone has just ignored. it also makes us realize that we should be grateful for what we have and not take anything for granted. i recommend this book for all readers.
