    One of only sixteen unembedded American journalists who stayed in Baghdad's now-legendary Palestine Hotel throughout the American invasion of Iraq, NPR's Anne Garrels was at the very center of the storm. She brings us the sights, sounds, and smells of our latest war with unparalleled vividness and immediacy.

    Native Texan says: "My favorite book of the year!"
    "Fair and Unbiased look at the war from the inside"
    Overall

    I have to admit that I often find some of the NPR people left leaning but Anne does a great job of taking the middle road here. The book is interesting and gives a nice insight into the people of Iraq. She doesn't take cheap shots at any politicians and just presents her account. Very good listen. Lets you see how much junk gets reported by even the "repected" news agencies just to get the story first. Recommended

    With the immediacy and force of a sniper's strike, Cold Zero is a blistering first-person account of life inside the FBI and its elite Hostage Rescue Team.

    Overall

    Overall a great book. Interesting to hear some of the high profile FBI cases (Waco, Ruby Ridge) from the point of view of an FBI specialist in the trenches. Problem was that many of those things seemed cut short. I am assuming it is because it was abridged. Overall though..still a great listen. The author is a little dry on the reading side and the inserted "mood" music can be a little silly...but still 4 stars.
