    MINDBLOWING

    This is a shattering read, one that sheds light on decades of US imperial behavior in Iraq, and before that decades of UK imperial behavior in Iraq. Anyone who is studying Iraq, or wants to know what the occupation is leading to for the people of Iraq and the young people being sent there by the US government MUST READ THIS BOOK. Everest's writing style is unique and fast paced enough so that young people will be able to digest it, and his facts are sharp and surgical.
