Emergency Sex (and Other Desperate Measures)

This is an honest and at times brutal and heart wrenching account by Kenneth Cain, Andrew Thomson, Heidi Postlewait of their experiences working for the UN across a range of war torn countries including Cambodia, Somalia, Rwanda and Haiti.

The book never loses it sense of black humour whilst at the same time dispelling any romanticism of such work. It details how the three friends meet, connect and bond as their stories interweave across the globe and their experiences irrevocably change the way they feel about UN work and life. A must read.
