Ebola by Bobby Adair

This book actually shocked my socks off! Just when I thought I've heard it, seen it all, I was thrown for a loop. A troubling loop at that, too. "Ebola" is very relevant to our society today and Adair left me heavily questioning our society.

Are we as Americans really that sheltered and that far removed that we have no idea what horrors actually take place in other countries, natural or man-made? 
Some of the things I read in this book opened my eyes to a lot of the horrors that less fortunate people experience on a normal basis. The worse we've probably seen is a homeless person standing on the corner. To have to envision a makeshift hospital full of thousands of dying patients, there's no words to adequately explain the raw emotions I felt. 
On the flip side, it's not too often that we get to see the Other side, the reason behind why terrorists do what they do. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a heart (literally!), and especially to those who want to invoke social change.
