Im a friend of Mark Bowden , whose publisher will soon be releasing an "authorized" version of the killing of bin LAden written by MArk.In his infrequent relaxation periods while he was writing the account, Ive been priviledged to hear him discuss his writing process of this book and , besides being a damn good writer of non-fiction, He will make all his historical narratives interesting. His training had been as a professional journalist so his more famous pieces of work , like Blackhawk Down, Killing Pablo,
and Guests of the Ayatollah
, were all massive chronicles of his investigative reporting skill.
Ive given Mark several hunks of my own technical writing and hes given me some valuable tips on making it more readable. (That is, when he got done laughing at my word choices).
