Emergency Sex and Other Desperate Measures (Dec. '07)
Emergency Sex and Other Desperate Measures: A True Story from Hell on Earth, by Kenneth Cain, Heidi Postlewait, Andrew Thomson – This is a great book! It’s the true story of three people who start working for the UN for very different reasons, and the things they experience along the way. They are in Cambodia, Somalia, Bosnia, Rwanda, and Haiti during their careers … and usually at the worst possible times in history. I really enjoyed this book. Even though it talks about some very horrible events it does so in a way that doesn’t make you want to put the book down and never pick it up again. I found it fascinating to read.
