Praise

“An impressive feat of journalism by a Washington outsider who seemed to know more about what was going on in Washington than most insiders did.”—The New York Times

“Hastings has written the funniest book I have read on the war and the US presence in Afghanistan–and it’s not easy being funny about Afghanistan or the US Army. The last time someone tried it was in the 1980s, when P.J. O’Rourke wrote hilarious pieces—also for Rolling Stone—about the Mujahideen in Peshawar and later the Taliban…. Hastings’s sense of humor is sly, cynical, and disrespectful, but it is honest….Hastings is an American kind of dissident. ”—Ahmed Rashid, The New York Review of Books

“Superb…One of the most eye-opening accounts…from one of the bravest and most intrepid journalists.”—Salon.com

“It demands to be read…this is a book of great consequence, not a pop-culture puff piece, which some of its deriders claim it is. The Operators seems destined to join the pantheon of the best of GWOT literature, not just for its rock-and-roll details, but for its piercing chronicles of a world gone mad.”—The Daily Beast

“Brings a fresh eye and a brutally authentic voice to America’s decade-old misadventure in Afghanistan.”—Los Angeles Times
