Review: The Wise Men
13 January 2017

I recently read The Wise Men: Six Friends and the World They Made. It's a book about a handful of people in the WWII era who worked together to shape US foreign policy. It's a long, detailed book, but I enjoyed it. It gives a view from the eyes of real people who made history. In addition to being informative, this book showed that a few people really can change the world. The ending was particularly powerful. I was inspired by the life stories of these six people. Each of them served their country diligently until the end. I felt gratitude towards them. It caused me to more deeply ponder what I want to accomplish with my own life. The book made me realize how greatly we need good people who dedicate their lives to the service of others.
