Thats good stuff. I like Mark Bowden's writing too. He does "Creative non-fiction" and has the added burden of carrying facts around an having to keep them in order cause thats what really hppened.
His book "DOCTOR DEALER" is a great piece of non-fiction about a dentist in Philly who became a big drug lord (kind of as a side business) . His writing was sharp and loaded with his use of the precise words for a situation.
I have to write a lot of technical stuff which is loads of jargon and math and its only of interest to small pack of rock nockers. Not all of us can write about dinosaurs and ****. Some have to write about crystl lattice dimensions and adsorption desorption potentials. BOring
