Taken from the introduction: "This book is about a man who, after being extraordinarily cured, choose to devote himself to the office of helping people of a faraway continent to live in a more dignified, human, happy way.

It shows us it is possible to make one's life really worth being lived". The book was published in 1995 by Edizioni Mediterranee.
