    The product of painstaking research and countless interviews, A High Price offers a nuanced, definitive historical account of Israel's bold but often failed efforts to fight terrorist groups. Israel's debacles in Lebanon against groups like the Lebanese Hizballah are examined in-depth, as is the country's problematic response to Jewish terrorist groups that have struck at Arabs and Israelis seeking peace.

    Eric says: "The worst production/narrator ever"
    "Hilariously bad pronunciation"

    What would have made A High Price better?

    Getting a narrator who can read big words like "Jordanian" and "Kalashnikov"


    Has A High Price turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, though the story was nothing special - basically a simple retelling of the events. It was like reading back issues of Newsweek. Pretty much limited to the Israeli viewpoint too.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator had a George W accent and consistently said "Jordinian" for "Jordanian", "Israels" for "Israelis" + similarly mangled countless other rather common words. The pronunciation of "coup d'etat" was a high-light!


    What character would you cut from A High Price?

    The narrator
