Publisher's Summary

Four-time winner of the Royal Television Society Journalist of the Year award, Alex Crawford is Special Correspondent for Sky News. Alex Crawford became a household name when she was the first reporter to broadcast live from Green Square as rebel forces took over Tripoli. Arriving in the capital on the back of a truck with a rebel convoy, Alex's reports were broadcast to the world via a manually operated satellite signal and a camera plugged into a cigarette-lighter charger. During her career as a journalist, Alex has been arrested, detained, interrogated, and faced live bullets, tear-gassing, rubber bullets, IEDs, and mortar shells.
Alex is a remarkable woman and BookD was honoured to have her on the show to talk about her book Colonel Gaddafi's Hat, where she speaks rather openly and honestly about the amount of death she's exposed to, about how important it is to be a female journalist in such extreme conditions post-Marie Colvin's death and how she manages to juggle her role as "bad-ass" war reporter, mother, and wife.
