A week ago I posted a review of the book, Father of Money. Father of Money is a memoir of Mr. Whiteley's time in Iraq where he worked as a liaison between the Iraqi people and the U.S. Army. For the review you can go here. Mr. Whiteley was gracious enough to give me an interview.
The author with Ammar, one of his more colorful, if not volatile, translators
Let me add my own two cents here. I've reviewed hundreds of books, including many nonfiction and military history stories. Father of Money is one of the best I've read. I know that war stories are saturating the market right now but this one should be at the top of your TBR pile or the book you give as a gift to people you know who enjoy this genre of literature.
