1.0 out of 5 stars Shallow and Pedantic. Jan. 21 2014
By Ethan Redrup - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
First off, I have caught multiple grammatical errors, and I'm only in the third chapter. I have also caught a factual error, and using misleading statistics. I also don't believe that Shapiro knows the proper use of quotation marks. His view of American foreign policy, while right to be critical, is so horribly cynical it does not allow for an honest, academic analysis of the issues in question. I would not recommend this book in any way.
