I did not enjoy the book very much. It was way too grossly detailed for me, and I felt sick while reading it. As a matter in fact, I was not even able to finish it, and I have no intention in finishing it either. It's definitely not my kind of book, and it frustrates me that we, as students, were not given the chance to choose our own book to read for our journalism class. The product did not please me; however it was in good condition. I was surprised that it was even used. It arrived at a decent time, and it did its job. I was pleased with the service. Thus, thank you very much!

The man who took the Somalia picture Dec 19 2008
By Curt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a Somalia veteran and well aware of how dangerous a mob could be, I had always wondered what Watson was thinking when he was the lone American in the middle of a seething mob of Africans who were tearing an American corpse apart. His description of the event is so powerful, I felt like I was back on Mogadishu's streets with him, seeing what he saw and feeling his fear, not of just being killed, but of being torn apart. Four other journalists had been dealt with that way by a Somali mob three months before the Black Hawk Down firefight and he presumed the same thing would happen to him. Not only does he take the pictures and manage to get away, but actually went back a second time to take more pictures in case his editor didn't accept the first batch because they showed the corpse's genitals.

Watson then goes on to describe other war zones he reported on: the Persian Gulf War, Rwanda, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq. He describes his trade of being a war correspondent without apology as he travels from one slaughter to another, taking pictures and writing the stories of the soldiers and their victims. In the end, he finds that the only thing that gives meaning in a world of war, bloodshed, violence, death and destruction is love. It sounds like a simple answer, but Watson's journey into where war lives is profound.

Great book! July 3 2008

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is really thought provoking. It should be particularly interesting to photographers with a political interest.
