Media Reviews
Patrick is one of the most courageous men I've ever met, though you'd never guess from his modest, gentle, quizzical, quirky manner. The book is brief, simple, but immensely powerful. It explains how utterly Washington misunderstood Iraq from the start and how it deluded itself ever after. It contains many arresting, wholly memorable accounts of life in Baghdad as it is actually lived. Patrick took many terrible risks to write it. The least you can do is read it. - Peter Hitchens, Mail on Sunday Required reading...a masterpiece of journalism. - A.N. Wilson, The Evening Standard Deeply informed, lucid account of Iraq which will stand the test of time. - Independent A necessary book. - The Guardian
