Good to see them grow up... a little
This is an interesting story and and interesting perspective. It's the memoire of a couple of back-pack sub-culture druggies who manage to get themselves to Iraq to work with the Coalition Provisional Authority. They do some good. They make lots of mistakes. At least they seem to be pretty transparent about their mistakes and one can almost see them growing up... a little.
It's a different perspective. Not a bad listen, but you can do better.

self-satisfied schmucks in Iraq
This was a fascinating view onto the conflict in Iraq, well worth listening to for that alone. Unfortunately, the authors of the book are truly obnoxious and so full of themselves that it is painful to realize that for many people they met in the Middle East, these guys represented America.
