This writer took a very fascinating subject that most
people want to read about and piled up lots of gossip with real intelligence, most of which has been known for years.
The book is disorganized. One never knows if the author wants to tell you about the various heads of Mossad, or about their exploit. He ends up telling you some sensational information about famous people that is not even fit to be printed in the Village Voice. The best place for his writing is the yellow press of Robert Maxwell.
