anyone read this book? [related to veteran's day]

WHAT WAS ASKED OF US: AN ORAL HISTORY OF THE IRAQ WAR BY THE SOLDIERS WHO FOUGHT IT, by Trish Wood; introduction by Bobby Muller (Little, Brown, 2006)

everyday i get an email 'day by day' calender for books and this was todays. here is what the email said:

Canadian journalist Trish Wood interviewed 29 veterans of the Iraq War. Their stories are straight-from-the-gut accounts of what happens to ordinary people when they come up against improvised explosive devices and when their friends die in their arms. They talk about the practical details of what to do with bodies that have been blown to pieces. They tell us about their perceptions of the Iraqis. They speak of things that inspired them and of what broke their hearts. Wood’s interviews give us a close-in, on-the-ground view of the war such as we seldom see.

it sounds interesting, just curious if anyone has read it.
