Overall rating: ★★★★★
This books is so well written that I wasn’t surprised to find myself crying quite frequently while reading it. It is a very honest view of how bad the world can be, and yet shows the slightest little glimmer of hope. It is easy to feel how Anderson Cooper changed, the more he saw, but refreshing to know that he recognized it and stopped himself from going too far.
The stories of him searching for the truth, and wanting to report it were interspersed with very derisive opinions of himself, and the bitter memories of having lost his brother. This is an eye opening must-read.
