I'd been hoping that - reputation notwithstanding - Chomsky was an intelligent, well-informed radical. Instead, I discovered he's just short of Lyndon LaRouche. Lots of border-line demagoguery and tinfoil-hat paranoia: sloppy reasoning, more instances of Godwin's Law than I thought possible in a mere 200 pages, and a strange fixation on the militarization of space. Style of the book - a collection of interviews with the sainted Chomsky so fawning that you'd half expect it was a chat on Good Morning America with a presidential candidate - doesn't help.
