Balakrishnan's book, "Peace, Inc." is one that reads quickly and is a pleasant read. The reader finds him/herself unable to put the book down. The book focuses on themes such as the American Dream, war, and peace. The book's protagonist, Bob, made the decision to eradicate his past and assume a new identity, "Bob". He chooses against taking a last name, disclosing his past, or even tying himself to any religious/ethnic group. The book has several themes (one of which includes closure). The book is set post-9/11, a time in which NYC (and most of the nation) stood still. Against all odds, Bob chooses to follow his dream of creating a business that focuses on peace and unity (which were essential post 9/11). The reader finds him/herself rooting for Bob throughout the duration of the book. The book's conclusion provides the protagonist (and subsequently the reader) with closure regarding Bob's past. All in all, this book is a highly recommended read.
