Another reviewer used the phrase 'jaw-dropping', and I have to agree. A quite remarkable, eye-opening account of the US attempts to rebuild Baghdad after the invasion/liberation (choose your own phrase!).
I can understand why it's won awards. My only reservation is that - although it's immensely readable - it feels rather poorly edited, with some repetition that makes one think it was published rather too quickly. But, overall, a fascinating book and well worth reading.
