I was driving to Del Norte last night and on NPR there was an interview with an air force officer using the pseudonym Matthew Alexandar. He was discussing a book that he had written under the same name entitled How to Break a Terrorist: The U.S. Interrogators Who Used Brains, Not Brutality, to Take Down the Deadliest Man in Iraq. After reading the reviews and hearing the man speak, it is a book I would really like to read. Has anyone read it or seen it in bookstores? I'd be interested in hearing if anyone has opinions about it... and would love to find it under the Christmas tree! :)
And here is one that looks interesting and appeals to my "survivalist" side... When Technology Fails (Revised & Expanded): A Manual for Self-Reliance, Sustainability, and Surviving the Long Emergency.
