Another bargain bin pick up, which frankly has amused and horrified me in equal parts.

The book's a few years old now and doesn't reflect recent devlopments of course, but there are enough scary statistics in here to give a lot of people sleepless nights.

Ignorance might not be bliss, but it can save a lot of heartache sometimes.

One stark fact from the back cover: America has spent $19trillion on defence since WWII, which equates to $26million every single day since Jesus was born.

There are some easy tragets in here, but the glad handing and mutual beneficiaries aren't buried too deep.

Why aren't more of these facts more widely known?
