A recent addition to the list, and definitely one of the best, is 'Mercy's Heroes' by Tom Crowley, a Vietnam veteran battling with PTSD who left a successful business career in Asia to work as a volunteer in Bangkok's biggest slum in Klong Toey.
What sets Tom's book apart is the way he adroitly contrasts his military adventures, including being wounded in action, with his bitter-sweet but mostly rewarding experiences with the foundation. Both portray a strug. gle for survival.
Tom is an excellent writer and 'Mercy Heroes' highlights the healing that is to be found in helping others. www.koehlerbooks.com
