The story itself is weak at best. the whole thing feels like a very cynical exploitation of people's 80-90s nostalgia. On top of that you have this insane Social Justice Warrior propaganda that states women are poorly treated in the video game world. As someone who has played video games all my life I call bullshit. In fact from Everquest to WoW to counterstrike being a woman and playing video games will have people going way out of their way to help or outright give you things, that you wouldn't had you been a guy.

Truly captivating. Hurry up and record the next book! I will probably just break down and get the kindle version in a few days, which is a shame because the naration was exceptional.

The author obviously served and it shows in the best kind of way. All to often mil-sci-fi pulls me out of the experience with baffling poor understanding of how military institutions and individuals function. Not that Mr. Nuttall's work is a duplicate of a military service per say (this is certainly sci-fi), but there is an authenticity here which is sorely lacking in the genre. Also the book brings up some very valid and pointed social commentary. Excellent all around.

A must read for anyone interested in the incredibly complex conflicts we face now and will likely face in the future. Few have the experience or pedigree in counter-insurgency that Kilcullen can boast. A great follow up to Tom Rick's "The Gamble", which might be considered an introductory text. Kilcullen's work is significantly more complex, yet manages to remain engaging.
