Starting by unraveling the scandal at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, the author uses unnamed sources and many documents to make his case against the policies of George W. Bush. Seymour M. Hersh, an investigative journalist for THE NEW YORKER, describes his work as an alternative history of the Iraq war. One novelty comes from the abridgment's format--selected chapters, rather than selected text. Peter Friedman, the unhurried reader, takes time to enunciate every word without letting the pace drag. He uses a deeper voice for quoted material and a dropped volume for parenthetical remarks, making it easy to discern the author's punctuation and follow the points of the audiobook.
