I picked this up after stumbling on the movie version on late-night cable. I always believe that the book is better and in this case it's true as well. This is a book that should be required reading for Americans, so that we can know what it is that we are part of when we send soldiers off to war. Kovic was a true patriot who volunteered for Vietnam -- what happened to him there and when he returned stateside makes for compelling, heart-breaking reading.
