During the 1970s, Alexandre Hageboutros grew up in Lebanon and experienced firsthand the ravages of war. While attempting to cling to some semblance of childhood, he developed the fortitude to survive the turmoil in his homeland and the hope of starting a new life in a land of opportunity. When he began college, he met Ghada, the love of his life, and he became more determined than ever to create a better future.Alexandre came to the United States at the age of twenty-four, influenced heavily by his family upbringing, his Catholic faith, and his medical education. The ongoing war in Lebanon had robbed him of much of the innocence of childhood and of many cherished friends and family members, but he was determined to begin anew, to create a joyous, peaceful life for himself and his family.No More Wars, Please: My Journey from Lebanon to America is an engaging memoir of a man to whom war was an everyday occurrence. Hageboutros openly shares the effects of war upon him and his family, how he established his oncology practice and insights concerning his view on how to achieve peace in a world torn by wars.
