Miss GP
I would have given this book three stars based on the fact that it's soooo repetitive. Although the book was short, I think the authors could have dropped another 100 pages if they'd eliminated all the duplication. My rating fell to two stars because the book is simply very dated, written after 9/11 but before the US attacked Iraq. So much has changed since its publication that one wonders how relevant most of its conclusions are, almost a decade later.
