I always like reading about other peoples lives and this is a good story.

This book needs organization, editing and proofreading. While many of the stories the author relates are interesting, the author assumes we know the time and place he's describing. Sometimes, I had difficulty placing an event in time, so the book doesn't flow, it jumps around, in time and place, as well as significance. Some of the stories are not made meaningful to the reader. The book has potential, I just wish I could have finished reading it.

Good read and very factual, couple of duplicate descriptions i.e bomb damage to boat restaurant in Vietnam and death of Anwar Saddat, not to be picky the book is very good and one wonders at the unassuming courage in many of the situations that would frankly scare the pants off most people, me included, all told very good.
