possibly a good book

This is just a cut and paste from an advertisement for the book. I don't know much about this book, and have always been somewhat skeptical about the publisher's motives, but the ad comes through a news service that is military friendly, and seems legit. On the other hand, many years ago, when I used to read the Doonesbury comic strip, the author seemed pretty even handed on how he handled issues from all sides of political debate. (Anybody still read him? My current newspaper doesn't carry him)

A series of dispatches from servicemembers in Iraq and Afghanistan have been compiled in a new book that offers a glimpse of life on the front lines. Conceived by Garry Trudeau, creator of the long-running, satirical comic strip Doonesbury, "The Sandbox" is a 309-page compilation of roughly 90 online journal entries penned by scores of the military's most talented scribes, the thousands of military bloggers (or milbloggers) in Afghanistan and Iraq who use the Internet to tell an unfiltered version of war to family members and friends. Proceeds from The Sandbox will be donated to the Fisher House Foundation. Visit the Fisher House Foundation website for more information.

This is where I copied the ad from, and where to get the book.
