Kill Chain: The Rise of the High-Tech Assassins - Andrew Cockburn

when you're young, you have an idea of what the world is. then you get older and start to deal with disturbing hints that maybe the world doesn't really work the way you thought. then you read books like this, and find out things are more rotten than you would have ever believed, everywhere, and always have been. but I'd rather keep reading, and know about all these pricks.

Kill Chain: The Rise of the High-Tech Assassins - Andrew Cockburn

nonfiction time, and I'm never far from a default preference for espionage-related books. I actually bumped into this one at the bookstore a while back, as I was looking for something else. I put it back and decided to pass. but I couldn't get it out of my mind, even as I was reading the graphic novel series DMZ. the next time I looked at Kill Chain--still not really excited about committing to it--a flip-through showed me it had artwork scattered throughout--and I don't mean dull artwork like what's on the cover; I even had a look at the title page and saw the notice "With Illustrations By Danijel Zezelj". well, there was a sign: Zezelj is a favorite comics artist of mine--and it was so weird that I just been enjoying some of his work guesting on DMZ! coincidence, or a  nudge by sneaky Fate?? who cares...more Zezelj artwork--no idea how it came about that he got tapped to provide artwork for a book about drones, of all things--and that's the clincher! now it's time to actually read the thing, and occasionally stop to admire the drawings. slick, Tigus-hooking move, publishers, or editors, or writer, whoever thought of it.

Extreme Wildfire: Smoke Jumpers, High-Tech Gear, Survival Tactics, and the Extraordinary Science of Fire
Extreme Wildfire: Smoke Jumpers, High-Te... Extreme Wildfire: Smoke Jumpers, High-Tech Gear, Survival Tactics, and the Extraordinary Science of Fire - Mark Thiessen Extreme Wildfire was an interesting and educational read. Everything is laid out in a thoughtful, easy to understand fashion. The fire facts, nature’s signals, and notes from the fields each give small bursts of useful (and cool!) information. I liked reading up on the famous fires. I’d never even heard of most of the fires, including Black Saturday or the Big Blowup. The pictures really give you a sense of what it’s like to be there, and exactly how dangerous it can be. These aren’t (for the most part) pretty pictures of flames. Instead the pictures do a great job at depicting the dangers and devastation a wildfire can bring. Mark Thiessen did a great job photographing all the fires. He’s … brave … to say the least!

The immediacy of the fires isn’t the only thing that Extreme Wildfire is about. It also tells readers why fires start, what happens afterwards, and how beneficial wildfires can actually be. I had no clue that cleaning up after the fire was out could be so dangerous! Wildfires are one of nature’s recyclers and one of nature’s defenders. I knew that fire could be beneficial for forests, in clearing out undergrowth and such. I did not know that some things only germinated after fires. So, definitely enjoyed discovering that tidbit with my daughter. There’s nothing that they didn’t cover, as far as I know.

Speaking of: When my kiddo laid eyes on the book, she immediately grabbed it and scurried to a corner of the couch. She didn’t give it back until she’d finished over half of it. There might have been bribes involved to get her to read it with me, instead of by herself. It was utterly fascinating to her. She was able to recognize the fire lookout’s responsibilities from watching Fireman Sam. The character Tom watches from a lookout tower and has a helicopter for rescues in case something happens. She particularly enjoyed reading the “Notes From the Field” sections.

We will be making use of the emergency family plan tips that were included in the book.

Overall, Extreme Wildfire was informative, engaging, and well laid out. I’d recommend it for anyone whose got some former Fireman Sam addicts in their brood.
