Skip the PBS sugar coating. Read this for reality.
Incredible. Lamb has touched the core of Africa in this book. He doesn't seem to be politically motivated; it is his love of Africa, and his hope that shows through in this book. A disturbing glimpse of a chaotic continent.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

must read for travelers
Lamb's book is a starkly realistic glimpse at Africa and its politics. I traveled with an old journalistic friend of his intermittantly from Saudi Arabia down through Kenya and heard some similiar stories first-hand. Lamb's insights are often controversial and frightening. His stories should be heard. An important read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
