Alright--so where with in the past 15 years did Friedman go astray? Friedman--or at least the version of himself who narates this book, guiding us through his time as a forign corispondant for the NY Times is a pragmatic journalist with a welcomed eye for the human element of the situation in the middle east. He is also rather unbiased, and candid, allowing the reader to get a feel for his own personal struggles, concerns and insight. He is introspective, not seperating himself from the situation but rather allowing himself to be a part of the story. His naritive style is engaging, warm and thought provoking. There is an equal amount here for the casual observer and students of forign policy.
