review 1: A very thorough and seemingly honest accounting of the current and future costs associated with the United States' wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. A little on the dry side, but I suppose that is to be expected with what amounts to a ledger. Economic costs of these wars is outlined in stark detail, with great pains taken to include all costs, including the costs of medical care and opportunity costs. Authors make a convincing case for withdrawal from Iraq sooner rather than later.
review 2: The buzz about this book has focused on the authors' estimate of the true costs of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the bulk of the book is a discussion of those costs, but the final chapter is a set of recommended reforms that ought to be read by every citizen of the U
... more.S. And then we all ought to write every Senator and Representative up for reelection in November and tell them that we will vote them out of office unless they pass these reforms. less
