The Pact: Three Young Men Make a Promise and Fulfill a Dream

Portada
A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

A remarkable story about the power of friendship.

Chosen by Essence to be among the forty most influential African Americans, the three doctors grew up in the streets of Newark, facing city life's temptations, pitfalls, even jail. But one day these three young men made a pact. They promised each other they would all become doctors, and stick it out together through the long, difficult journey to attaining that dream. Sampson Davis, George Jenkins, and Rameck Hunt are not only friends to this day--they are all doctors.

This is a story about joining forces and beating the odds. A story about changing your life, and the lives of those you love most... together.
