It is not hard to understand why Joel won a Pulitzer for his reporting on Cambodia after reading this book.
I read it because I was extremely interested in Cambodia since I am going there in January and hope to live there a long time teaching English to adults.
The chapters have a heavily detailed news journalism flavor like reading a news magazine series.
It is very long 384 pages.
It is good writing absolutley; but in book form the information tends to get just too heavy and it goes on and on and wears out the reader. I never would have finished it if not for my strong interest in the subject.
Joel is a great journalist but he doesn't know how to trim down his material to make a GREAT non-fiction book.
If you are not extermely interested in Cambodia like me you will likely get tired of this book before you can finish it.
