I'm afraid I can't recommend this book because the editing is just incredibly shoddy. I really wouldn't want to subject you to it.
It is good, though, if you're looking for first-person perspectives from people who were at the 1999 WTO protest in Seattle. It serves as yet another document of the immense police brutality that occurred at Seattle and in events following, providing good reason to be concerned about the ties between U.S. police forces, military, and large corporations.
