Nasty, Brutish, and Short, a memoir by Todd Millick, a former U.S. government officer, was published in June 2016. The book is a collection of irreverent essays about twenty years of life overseas. In the book, the author no longer holds his tongue or bites his lip about his experiences—which means it’s payback time. He now speaks his mind about all the strange people and places he has encountered around the world over the last two decades.

And he takes the reader on a funny and endearing jaunt to a dozen countries, from England to Egypt, and Afghanistan to Haiti, answering crucial questions like Why are Pakistani driving ranges so dangerous? And, How long can Bulgarians actually hold a grudge?

Unlike other foreign travel books, the author isn’t just passing through. He has lived in these dangerous and difficult places, often for years at a time. He knows their people, streets, and customs like the back of his hand. It was part of his job. Sometimes his life depended on it.
