Hack in a Flak Jacket
By Peter Stefanovic
Rating: 4.5 / 5
Journalist and former Channel Nine foreign correspondent Peter Stefanovic has seen regimes rise and fall, witnessed the fallout of national disasters, and reported on some of the most pivotal events of the 21st century. In his first memoir, Hack in a Flak Jacket he gives a thrilling account of some of his most memorable stories.
Giving an insider’s view into life on the frontline of the media, Stefanovic describes what happened during the aftershocks of the 2010 Haiti earthquake, what occurred during Barack Obama’s rise to power, and how he felt meeting people directly affected by ISIS.
Highlights include the day Stefanovic met a terrorist, his account of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict and his reflection on the personal toll such tragedies took on him. A well-written and entertaining read, Stefanovic’s self-deprecating humour and knowledge make this a stellar debut that leaves you begging for more.
