Incredible piece of work, Aug. 12 2011
Excellent. A quick and informative read. The subtitle does not lie, Bahadur truly takes you inside the world of Somali pirates. With unprecedented access to the clans that run most of Somalia, Bahadur gives an intriguing account of what pirates are all about. Don't be fooled by media reports on pirates, pick this book up. Not only will you learn all about the inner workings of pirates in Somalia, Bahadur also does exhaustive research on the topic on an international scale - including interviews with heads of government agencies and ex-hostages. Very well written with a flair of wit, Bahadur accomplished an incredible piece of work.
