Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Very Personal Memoir Just finished Sean's wonderful book. What a great read. He puts you right there, it feels like one is looking over his shoulder as all of these calamities descend! A memoir, truly, not so much about his job, but how he negotiates the trials of keeping his family together. He's a husband and father first. I like that it's not a Hollywood/formulaic piece. Very real, very down-to-earth. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expertly Handled Memoir About Being a Foreign Correspondent Sean expertly handles the thrill of being a foreign correspondent in one of the world's most exciting cities with the angst that comes from having to balance his life long dream with the demands of his family. His story is exhilarating as he flies off to compelling assignments, funny as he deals with London red tape and bureaucracy, and torturous as he never seems to win trying to placate his unhappy trailing spouse and young daughter. A super read!
