The richness of this narrative is enhanced by the many details of the life of an expatriate living and working in Saudi Arabia. Vignettes of his personal life woven seamlessly in with details of his professional life make a rich tapestry that lures the reader to read just one more page...then one more... Detailed accounts of local customs and mores are fascinating to read, and elicit the feeling that the reader is there, experiencing the culture right along with the author. The details presented of his experiences (sights, sounds, smells, feelings, etc.) provide depth and breadth that draw the reader in.
His experience as a surgeon living and working in Saudi Arabia enhanced Chang's professional development and enriched his growth as a person. Part of this growth encompassed essential components such as awareness of self; awareness of his own strengths, weaknesses and limitations; and adapting to local conditions. It is an altogether captivating and informative book.
