Summary: ''Jon Krakauer has done his job well;Where Men Win Gloryis a tough read...[He] has tackled a task that required the distillation and organization of volumes of disparate information. That he has fielded a coherent narrative is a victory. that he has made it compelling and passionate is a difficult blessing...In mining Tillman's life and death, Krakauer uncovers a story much more compelling than anything that could be spun.'' - The Denver Post ''Krakauer -- whose forenseic studies
of the Emrsonian Man in books such asInto Thin AirandInto the Wildyield so much insight -- has turned in a beautiful bit of reporting, documenting Tillman's life with journals and interviews with those close to him...Must be counted as the definitive version of events surrounding Tillman's death.'' --The Los Angeles Times ''In this wrenching account of the life and eath of NFL star Pat Tillman, killed in friendly fire in Afghanistan in 2004, Krakauer brilliants turns investigative reporter...Krakauer will break your heart recounting how the military lied about Pat's death to his parents and fellow soldier Kevin.'' -- People ''In this masterful work, bestselling adventure writer Jon Krakauer renders an intimate portrait of Tillman and brilliantly captures the sadness, madness, and heroism of the post-9/11 world...Drawing on interviews with family, fellow soldiers and correspondence, Krakauer's page-turning account captures every detail -- Tillman's extraordinary character, including the ''tragic vitures'' that led him to give up a comfortable life and athletic stardom for the army; the harshness of military training and life; the rugged terrain of remote Afghanistan -- and, of course, the ravages of war. Most critically, by telling Tillman's personal story and blowing apart the ''cynical cover-up'' that followed his killing, Krakauer lays bare the best -- and worst -- of America's War on Terror.'' -- Publisher's Weekly ''Where Men Win Glory, Jon Krakauer's narrative of pro football
