I am really looking forward to reading the book. Many colorful and intriguing stories were shared at the talk. My only regret is that the questions weren't more probing into their observations about the cultures of the Middle East and the specific challenges to overcoming the unrest in that region. The anecdotes were great, I just wish there had been a touch more substance. I don't hold the speakers responsible for this, but more the Q&A format. Got the impression that there weren't very many in the audience familiar with Robert Baer's earlier books.

I was dissapointed. I was hoping to get more of an overview of thier lives. Instead, they were asked questions by a moderator and we just got bits and pieces of things that were disjointed.
Dayna seemed generally disconnected and uninterested....continued
