The book gives great insight to the Iraq conflict and should be read (or listened to) by all Americans. The book has stories about average Iraqis, and how their attitudes towards the American occupation changes overtime. Packer points out that as mistakes where made, trust on both sides was lost. The problems in Iraqi have been brewing for decades to centuries and will not be easily resolved.
I can listen to this story over and over. A who-dun-it with twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very end.
After listening to The Magician's Guild, I had to buy the last two books of the trilogy to find out what happens. I only wish they were available in audio form as well. This is a great trilogy.

Sam Sedar does a great job of reading his book. The old American dream -- work hard, get rich. The new American dream -- being rich. Any questions?
The can listen to this book (and trilogy) over and over. What a great story. The reading by Simon Jones brings the book to life. Truly enjoyable.
Wow! After listening to this book, the label "made in China" takes on a whole different meaning. Very informative. The Chinese government finances our debt so we can buy more cheap goods from China. This is a vicious cycle that can not go on for ever. Free trade is not the same as fair trade. The question is, will the US be the loser or will China self implode first?
