I found this book captivating. For a guy who grew up in a Yemeni family in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco to go back to his roots to become a coffee importer -- it's an improbable story and one of a kind. Add to that his absolutely horrible timing: right when the war breaks out. I'm so glad he survived to tell the tale.
