Sweeney's book is a spark in the dark of North Korea.

-- "Times (London)"

Harrowing...creepy and poignant; and, in turn, tragic and obscene. North Korea Undercover asserts that the West should be more concerned about labor camps than nuclear weapons.

-- "Sunday Business Post (Dublin)"

This is a chilling book, but a timely one, written with both humor and compassion. Buy it, read it, and discuss it.

-- "Solidarity"

An outsider's rare look into a mysterious and terrifying place ruled and ruined by three generations of tyrants...This account is shocking and unsettling, but also darkly entertaining.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

Sweeney provides a remarkably vivid look at this hidden country...An investigative must-read.
