Enjoyed the book very much but also felt that he brushed over certain facts about Clinton that could have offered a more balanced view, I understand he is a democrat, but to not point out obvious flaws of Clinton's leaves a little to be desired. I would have given him more credit if he had.
In all the book was very good at exposing the spin of politics, only wish journalists would hold politicans "at the time" accountable for their blantant lies rather than 2-6months after.
A wonderful series, you become attached to the characters over the life span of the series.
What a wonderful thought provoking book, highly recommended to all.
What a wonderful book!! It does not take sides on the war, just lays out the facts for the reader to absorb. I will have to watch the news even closer now to try and see the backdoor plays that effect the global political scene.
Loved the book!!! Unfortunately now I can't listen to any politican without thinking of "double speak" or the more apt "Ministry of Truth". Maybe the title could be revised to 2004?
I hate fishing, but this book had some great characters and a great story line. A fine listen for those who enjoy comedy.
Forget the newspapers listen to the man with the knowledge.
Following world events from the end of WWII and mixing fact with fiction was very very well done. One could easily assume they are reading a factual account of events. The story is long BUT there are so many twists and turns that the reader never feels as though the writer has over extended. Fantastic book, author and narrator!!
The difference between Naom and other so called political pundants is that he does the research to back up his claims. And not just any research, very very thorough research. A must read for any politically aware person.
Chomsky gives very detailed examples of state sponsored terrorism over decades and looks at the current world from an angle many of us do not bother to take the time to see.
This booking was gripping from the very beginning. I couldn`t put it down, every spare second I had each day was spent reading this book. The BEST book I have EVER read bar none!!
Simply if you want to know what was going on behind closed doors over a few administrations with regards to terrorism, who did what and who did not. This book should be a must read for all Americans. Richard Clarke was the point man and certainly qualified to make the judgements he makes in this book. Fantastic read!!
