Tom Friedman has a regular column in the New York Times. I have always loved his columns and this book is excellent (It is actually a collection of his NY Times columns). A must read for anyone who is interested in politics in the middle east, terrorism and its origin and the Iraq war.
Reviewers wrote, "Top-notch.... well-researched, original thinking." "A valuable work..... Few writers have a better grasp than Thomas L Friedman of the dimensions of Americas's war on terrorism....He is a brilliant reporter [who] has revolutionized foreign-affairs punditry."
