    As I personally knew and still know some of the hostages, and lived in constant anxiety during their captivity, this documents it very well. A must read for every one.

    Very short, to the point, quick read. I got all the facts from it about a week before I saw the movie - which made me appreciate the movie more, with regard to its accuracy. No spoilers, since we all know how it ends before going in. The author, who's a CIA guy, not a writer, has a dry style, but it zips right along without a lot of filler.
