A must read to understand what is happening, and why some countries/characters in the world behave/perform the way they do. The auther took an excellent neutral - almost a research approach - to identify and analyze the root cause and reasons for happenings taking place recently (as well as in the recent past) and who those are interrelated events and rational, even to past 50 years observations. Very easy and simple flow way of narrating history. Excellent opportunity.
Once you read this book, you will understand why persidents and leaders of different countries (including our own), can't understand the conflict and baffled that they can't find a solution to a problem. This book is a priceless and invaluable to anyone who wishs to understand. An eye opener to events around us, and a lesson for any adminstration, as well as, a potential step to real solutions - to those who are honest and want to solve a problem..
