Matt Crawford speaks with author Judith Pearson about her rereleased book Belly of the Beast. Pearson recounts the harrowing tale of Naval Corpsman Estel Myers as a POW aboard the Japanese prison ship Oryoku Maru. Held for nearly three years in horrid conditions that included, suffocation, malnutrition, torture, disease and mental hardships that took the life or more than three quarters of his fellow prisoners, this is an example of true courage and compassion. This is a book that transcends your imagination and Pearson puts you in the hold with those brave men. I hope all will read this book!
