Frankly, I cannot believe that any book about an event of such magnitude put out less than year from when it happened can be worth very much.

This being said: the book looked better than Brinkley's book or that terrible looking one "Hell or High Water."

Also, I find myself wondering and perhaps someone who has read the entire book can answer this: did the author of this one admit that the media misreported aspects of this disaster ("babies being raped") on an epic level (which makes their critiques of the intelligence failure on Iraqi WMD seem a bit hypocritical)?

In answer to your question, the author does in fact talk about media failures and their sometimes devestating effects (a doctor at Charity Hospital confronts a National Guardsman who has been told to leave his post during night hours because of false reports of dangerous conditions).

What I like about this book is that the author doesn't attempt to answer questions that require the passage of time. He is focused on the telling the stories of people from various walks of life, and he does that very well.
