Kevin Sites has lived through the craziest year of anybody’s life. He took his video camera, stills camera and a laptop. He married them to a Satellite Internet connection and then as Yahoo! News’s first war correspondent – he threw himself into 20 war zones in a single year. Something that no other reporter has ever done in history.
If you’ve ever wondered what it takes to be a war reporter in the era of modern media, this is the book for you. If you’re fascinated by tales of human courage and human horror – this is also the book for you. I couldn’t put In The Hot Zone down and I think some of the imagery will stay with me for the rest of my life.
