Reviews

AMAZON REVIEWS:

“It has real pace and emotional power – so much so, that despite the compulsion to keep turning the pages, there are times when you just can't, and you have to pause to regroup and realign your own emotional reserves.”

-Roger Risborough

“Reading Colonel Gadaffi's Hat was like sprinting a marathon. The intensity of what was experienced, physically and emotionally leaves one 'breathless'.
Alex's vivid account of the revolution as it unfolds keeps you sprinting through the pages. Phew!”

-George Donal

“Alex shows her true grit and dedication in getting the real story out.

She effortlessly manages to portray what life is like for a war correspondent (everything you don't get to see in the 2 minute TV reports) …this book is a rarity in that once you start reading you can't stop!”

-Sara

“This is a sweaty, first-person, present-tense account of broadcast news at its most exhilarating, immediate and instinctive.”

-Beardy

“Page after page is filled with stories of ducking and diving, dodging and weaving as she overcomes any barrier in her way to get to the guts of the story and the hearts of the people. I was gripped from start to finish as she took me on a roller coaster of adrenaline, nail-biting and a couple of sneaky tears. Utterly brilliant.”

-Kate

“Alex's unbelivable experiences and compassion for the people of Libya make this book impossible to put down.
I remember watching Alex and her team travel into Tripoli on the rebel convoy last August and found myself fighting to turn the TV off as it was so late at night. This book had the same effect; gripping from beginning to end.”

-Kirsty Benbow

“As she takes us with her inside that death-trap of a mosque in Zawiya, onto the frontline in Misrata and riding into Tripoli with the liberating rebels, what comes bursting through is Alex's compassion, her professionalism and her humanity.”

-Jeremy Thompson
