Addario travels with purpose and bravery, photographing the Afghan people before and after the Taliban reign, the civilian casualties and misunderstood insurgents of the Iraq War and the burned villages and countless dead in Darfur. She exposes a culture of violence against women in the Congo and tells the riveting story of her headline-making kidnapping by pro-Qaddafi forces in the Libyan civil war.
As a woman photojournalist, Addario is determined to be taken as seriously as her male peers. She fights her way into a boys' club of a profession, and once there, rather than choose between her personal life and her career, Addario learns to strike a necessary balance.
Watching uprisings unfold and people fight to the death for their freedom, Addario understands she is documenting not only news but also the fate of society. It's What I Do is more than just a snapshot of life on the front lines; it bears witness to the human cost of war.

Edge of the seat stuff
After watching the Chris Hondros documentary at London's Frontier club, I wanted to seek further insight into the photojournalist career. This book doesn't disappoint and there are many situations where I am scared for the author. The bravery people like Linsey show to document a story is beyond my comprehension. Telling the story can and does inactive political change and can help those that need it most. I enjoyed the book all the way through and appreciate the author narration. Recommended.
