Although Mr. Shavit bends over backward to be 'fair' the story is far from fair.
In fact he totally ignores the whole issue of the Ultra-Orthodox world.
Although he covers the Shas party however, he totally ignores the Ultra-Orthodox segment of the Israeli community.
The book is also too long, and could have benefited from a good editor.
Overall, I enjoyed the book.
However, I still cannot understand why the 'reader' has to put on a fake accent? It was really bothersome to listen to his fake accent.
This book will keep you glued to the story, it is the story of health; of a president and of the nation who mourned him.
It is an excellent, a page turner and a book you will not be able to put down!
The book makes some interesting points however, the author has this terrible and annoying habit of anytime he wants to quote from a source from a female, he has a woman read the piece. Besides the fact that it is very annoying and distracting -it is childish and uncalled for.
Is he doing it to be politically correct? If so, why stop there? Why not do the have the quotes from African Americans read by African Americans? And why not the quotes from Herb Silverman read by a Jewish man?
The whole switch to the woman's voice was distracting and made me feel that the author bent over backward to be PC.
It really ruined the read.
I hope he never does anything so silly and annoying again.
This book is a must for anyone who wants to know the story of six day war.
The book is even handed and fair and is not biased at all.
I would recommend this book for all who want to read a correct and accurate history of the famous six day war.
Excellent book, enjoyed it very much I would recommend this book to every person.
The book is very interesting and very captivating.
Everyone can benefit from reading this book.
Pat Conroy does an amazing job of reading this book
