One of the best books on this conflict without the jingoism and the cliched tales of childhood and training. A very intelligent and insightful book on people under stress. I have 750 hours of listening to audio books and this one rates in the top 5.
this book has a remarkable story and the ensemble cast that narrate it are a joy to listen to. Highly recommended and probably the first book that I would listen to again.
great material but poorly written. No analysis. Like reading a tabloid newspaper.Hopefully the interview material can be donated to other writer who could do a better job.
What a thin book this is. I was wondering whether I was reading the same book as the reviewers who gave it 4+ stars. Weatherford without much justification credits the Mongols with most of what is good in the world. I was waiting for Weatherford to claim that the Mongols had split the atom first or that they gave Steve Jobs the inspiration for the iPhone. Avoid.
John Perkins the author would like us to think that he is revealing to us hidden truths but all we get is self righteous musings of unnecessary length. He does not reveal any facts or true confessions. All we get is "hearsay" and the type of car he was driving. Perkins in fact has committed a scam on his readers. Do not waste your time or money on this rubbish.
