"[Farmer] offers an anthology of 19 speeches on global health initiatives delivered between 2001 and 2012. . . .[from which ] readers will emerge with a heightened sense of the responsibilities and sacrifices required of future public servants." - Publishers Weekly
"The publication of this book is timely. It would make a perfect gift for a medical or biology graduate, but it would be inspiring to anyone who reads it. His speeches make one feel empowered ? to make a difference, to contribute to health policy, to accompany another who is struggling. In the speeches collected in To Repair the World, Dr. Farmer teaches us crucial lessons that we must all learn from, as scientists, as doctors, and as human beings." - Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine
"...[To Repair the World] does not disappoint." - Los Angeles Review of Books
