I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a little depressing, but it gives an accurate picture of how some of our staunchest allies now think poorly of the US. Sweig does a good job highlighting the fact that much of the anti-americanism throughout the world was in place well before the second Iraq war began, but that Iraq became the tipping point in many parts of the world. She offers some good solutions to help bolster our international image, but many are not politically viable in the current state of this country. I recommend this book to anyone studying international relations.
