Cooper's book takes a look back at some of the events he has reported on, from starvation in Somalia to the fighting in Sarajevo to Hurricane Katrina. Though the memoir shies away from any current personal information, he examines his childhood and how the tragedies he endured growing up have influenced his career choices. This is not a book for the faint of heart (there are many graphic descriptions of the violence and suffering he has witnessed), but for those interested in recent events, it's a good choice. Cooper narrates his own words which really brings his story to life.
