Neck Deep: The Disastrous Presidency of George W. Bush

The authors of this book (Robert Parry and sons) have published the first excerpt from this book which you can read here (2nd except coming soon i believe):

http://consortiumnews.com/2008/031708...

This appears to be a well thought out and written book; in this excerpt writing in brief about the run-in to the war, journalism, patriotism and lost objectivity.

I appreciate good investigative journalism and it seems that this should hopefully be a good example.

edit: eek in Amazon Uk there is only 1 copy.. for £46/$93!!! In Amazon US it is $23/£11 heh.

Ah excellent thanks Oliver, i certainly am very interested in good investigative journalism, so all recommendations in that field are always welcome. I see you are adding your books.. i see many matches and many more that i have to add to my wish list now thanks!

I should take shares out in Amazon.. i just bought another 18 books from there yesterday heh.

Hmm, you give me an idea.. perhaps we can list journalists whose writings are really worth reading.. ill make a new topic for it, feel free to add if ye like.

btw, part 2 of their released excerpts to the book, titled, "Iraq War as War Crime", is here for any interested:
