Fixing Hell

An Army Psychologist Confronts Abu Ghraib
By Col. (ret.) Larry C. James Ph.D. (Audiobook, 2008)
In April 2004, the world was shocked by the brutal pictures of beatings, dog attacks, sex acts, and the torture of prisoners held at Abu Ghraib in Iraq. As the story broke, and the world began to learn about the extent of the horrors that occurred there, the US Army dispatched Col. Larry James to Abu Ghraib with an overwhelming assignment: to dissect this catastrophe, fix it, and prevent it from ever happening again.

A nationally well-known and respected Army Psychologist, Col. James's expertise (including a previous deployment to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba) made him the one individual capable of taking on this enormous task. Through Col. James's own experience on the ground, readers will see the tightrope military personnel must walk while fighting in the still new battlefield of the war on terror, the challenge of serving as both a doctor/healer and combatant soldier, and what can (and must) be done to ensure that interrogations are safe, moral, ethical, and effective.

An insightful and intense personal narrative, Fixing Hell shows readers Abu Ghraib as they've never seen it before.

  • "Narrator Eric Kramer captures this contradiction in a sure voice that also projects James's (author) gentleness, creative thinking, and compassion. James bring listeners into the painful realities of Abu Ghraib with powerful dialogues, and Kramer's delivery makes the most of these conversations."

  • "This third book by the author gets under the skin of glib truths we've believed about success. Gladwell unveils studies and similarities that point to opportunity, timing and 10,000 hours of practice as keys to success rather than sheer talent. Gladwell's voice combines knowledgeable professor and gifted storyteller."
