Full disclosure: I was part of the Gaza Freedom March in 2010 and saw Gaza with my own eyes, and was in Cairo in January 2011 with a CodePink delegation trying to get into Gaza again. So I clearly have opinions of my own.
This is a superb book; if it was possible to give it a 10 star rating I would. It gives a vivid and moving account in many voices of the work, sufferings and hardships the 44 people on two small boats went through in 2008 to be the first to get into the world's largest concentration camp in Gaza, and of the suffering of the people there. And it gives a detailed review with abundant evidence of the real reason for their suffering - the Israeli government's theft of the vast reserves of natural gas in Gaza waters.
