Distasteful Dribble
This book represents self-serving drivel from what I view as a failed journalist trying to justify her own self grandiose view of her ability to report on events in Afghanistan/Pakistan and India. Her references to being a "war/adrenalin junkie" and returning to life as a "civilian" in the US sums up her self-dillusion. At no time was she part of any military forces operating in these areas, so one is left wondering what she means that she is now a "civilian" other than to conclude she is a idiot. An embarrassing self-justification of a failed journalist and author showing the reader how inept she was at understanding the situation she confronted and an inability to report/write objectively.
