Congratulations and heartfelt thanks to Sinead Walsh and Oliver Johnson on their most inspiring book demonstrating how the best of human endeavour can persist to overcome overwhelming obstacles to save lives in ebola stricken Sierra Leone. The book does not gloss over the struggle and the obstacles they met along the way, but highlights them in the hope that lessons will be learnt by international agencies and local politicians.
