As NPR's senior foreign correspondent, Anne Garrels has covered conflicts in Chechnya, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. She is renowned for the direct, down-to-earth reportage and her independent-minded insight into what she observes. One of only sixteen un-imbedded American journalists who stayed in the now-legendary Palestine Hotel in Baghdad throughout the American invasion, Garrels was uniquely placed to describe our latest war. At the heart of Garrels' narrative is her evolving relationship with her Iraqi driver, Tahir, who becomes her friend and confidant, often serving as her eyes and ears among the populace and taking her where no other reporter was able to penetrate; Tahir's own opinions and poignant personal story provide a trenchant counterpoint to the headline news. The diary is also punctuated by e-mail bulletins sent by Garrels' husband, Vint Lawrence, to friends around the world, providing a private view of the rough-and-tumble, often dangerous life of a foreign correspondent, along with much-needed comic relief. The result is an enthralling, deeply personal, utterly authentic picture of this war that no one else could have written. As Chicago Sun Times critic Lloyd Sachs wrote about Garrels' work from Baghdad, "a few choice words, honestly delivered, are worth more than a thousand pictures, in your mind's eye, they carry lasting truth."

I really enjoyed reading this book and I enjoyed Anne Garrels method of telling the story of pre-war (2003 war) Iraq from the point of view of someone who was there on the ground witnessing things firsthand. Anne is a great journalist and now I also find that she is a talented author. When you read parts of this book you can remember seeing the scenes on the evening news, but hearing the backstory from someone who was actually there really brings these events to life.

On an editorial note; it just feels such a pity that we abandoned those who helped us so to the animals called ISIS. Seems Vietnam didn't teach us that this is a wrong thing to do.

Great book. I ordered "Naked in Baghdad" after reading Anne Garrels current "Putin Country". I need to pass them both on to others. I did think the emails from her husband "back home" were unnecessary and detracting, especially in the first half of the book. After the first couple, I just skimmed and skipped through them. Later, some of them were worth reading, as they contained serious information and questions.

I read this book after reading "From Baghdad With Love" and how Anne Garrels helped save a puppy. Garrels was in Baghdad reporting for NPR weeks before the U.S. invasion in 2003 and remained there for several weeks afterwards. I found this book a worthwhile read and as far as I can tell it is her only book.

Anne Garrels is concise and insightful, just as her reporting from Iraq was. Anyone who heard her reports on NPR can easily hear her voice here in the book. There are somewhat awkward phrases thrown in from her husband back home, and at first I thought they distracted from the book. But they give some idea of what the spouses of war reporters go through themselves. Anne's accounts, explanations and behind-the-scenes views show us far more what is involved in putting together the well-crafted stories that end up on the air.

Having been young during this time period this is a great narration of the events in Bagdad and Erie foreshadowing of events happening now. Anne is brave and talent report I never new all the hoops that new reports over sea must jump through. Thanks for all the hard work.
Gri
Excellent book. It's amazing just how much we don't know about the reporters actual situation and danger. I learned a lot about what happened in Iraq after the US attacked them.
Freighton
Fantastic
This is a well-written, often fascinating account of life in Baghdad under Saddam while waiting for the bombs to fall. It's fun to hear some of the events from war-time Baghdad told from the receiving end.
That said, all she ever reported was local color. What was the purpose in risking her life, except for her own ego and adrenalin rush?
This is a nice little book, but there's not much new or relevant here about the Iraqi situation.
