About the book:
The Philippine foreign service is composed of men and women with the most diverse academic and professional backgrounds imaginable. Its corps of officers include erstwhile academicians, journalists, writers, lawyers, certified public accountants, bankers, economists, political scientists, historians, sociologists, psychologists, social workers, to name but a few. There is probably no other field in both the public and private sectors than can equally pride itself with the immense diversity of talents. And the reason for this is simple: there is no single pathway to diplomacy.
The book contains variegated ruminations that could help young diplomats find their own way to the very challenging and immensely fulfilling world of diplomacy.
