War photographer Lynsey Addario's memoir It's What I Do is the story of how the relentless pursuit of truth, in virtually every major theater of war in the twenty-first century, has shaped her life. What she does, with clarity, beauty, and candor, is to document, often in their most extreme moments, the complex lives of others. It's her work, but it's much more than that: it's her singular calling.

An engrossing account of one photo correspondent's life in a career that has taken her all over the world, sometimes into the most dangerous places, and finding beauty even in the most desperate of places.

An engaging memoir that includes the author's experiences as a war photojournalist, covering everywhere from Iraq to Syria. Clearly a dangerous career.

If you know her work, and most people do, it might be best to leave this book alone. The photos you have seen pretty much stand on their own. But, if you are thinking about loading up your cameras and buying a ticket to the next war then you should read this first.

Worth the read! This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. It is beautiful and heart breaking while being punctuated throughout with her beautiful pictures. The story was a page turner and her interview on The Daily Show (where I first saw Addario promoting the story) was also compelling. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in travel, journalism, politics, or people in general.
