To commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11, TRVL publishes "The Truth about Afghanistan" on iPad. It is an uncensored report on Afghanistan through the eyes of acclaimed photographer Ton Koene, who first visited the country in 1996. The irony is that the truth about Afghanistan doesn't exist, and this book's importance is that it counter-balances the ten years of propaganda, political spin, rethoric and commercials of NGOs that try to tell you otherwise.

Koene: "It is hard to do the complexity of Afghanistan justice. But I think that everybody who has spent considerable time in Afghanistan - whether it be our troops, aid workers or reporters - will recognize the picture of Afghanistan that I am drawing in my book. That has been my aim, to show Afghanistan uncensored, as it really is."

Ton Koene's book consists of 170 stunning photographs covering all aspects of the society. Each photo is accompanied by a comprehensive, explanatory text with facts and personal observations.
Studying the faces of the young illiterate police recruits as portrayed by Koene will give you more insight in Afghanistan and its future than all the headlines and all the news reports over the last ten years combined. 

Geo positioning allows readers to see exactly where the photo was taken, and the camera settings explain how they were taken. The photos are supplemented by dozens of amazing videos, some of which you will never forget, like the Afghan children playing a game of suicide bomber that ends with a rather realistic blast.  

With "The Truth about Afghanistan" TRVL is introducing a new product: beautiful Coffee Table books for the price of a coffee. The concept was created by the readers of TRVL: TRVL conducted a survey to find out how much they would be willing to pay for an iPad-exclusive photo book. The result: $1.99.

TRVL is the highest rated magazine on iPad, it has readership in over 170 countries and its downloads compete with the best performing magazines on iPad. Publishing photo books is part of TRVL's overall strategy of becoming a leading publisher on iPad.
