Matt Gallagher's KABOOM Gets Another Rave Review

This time in the September issue of Proceedings, the magazine of the Naval Institute:

Matt Gallagher’s memoir is the finest I have yet read from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan…The genius of both the blog and the memoir is Gallagher’s ability and willingness to accurately capture not just the fear and boredom of small-unit combat but also its hilarity…Laugh-out-loud dialogue…Gallagher’s parting act of service is this book, which is as noteworthy for its adventurous and stylized prose as for the story it tells…As engaging a combat memoir as any I have ever read.

Watch him on New England Cable News on August 12th:

On WGBH's The Emily Rooney Show on August 12th, as well:

 Matt will appear at Denver's Tattered Cover Book Store on September 15th.
