|I realize it's not science fiction, but this looked like the best category for it, since I'm talking about the book rather than Somalia per se.
It's actually on the reading list for one of my courses this quarter. I was wondering if anyone here had read it (well, OK, no, I really wasn't wondering that, I know some of y'all have) and was wondering what people thought of it in general. I haven't gotten it yet (it's on order from Amazon), but from what little I've heard, I'm surprised to find it showing up in a political science class. Thoughts/reviews? Little tidbits of information that might make reading it more enjoyable or help understand what's going on better?
