I have a whole new appreciation for journalists after reading this book. They put themselves into harms way so that we can know what is going on in places we would ordinarily never hear about. This book should be made into a movie although people wouldn't believe it. I totally recommend this book, it is a thriller, suspense, historical, political non-fiction- what more can you want?
