'Arguably the most important intellectual alive', says the blurb. Impressive, until you find that what the New York Times (from which the quote is taken) actually said was: 'Arguably the most important intellectual alive, how can he write such nonsense about international affairs and foreign policy?' It all goes downhill from here.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

i've always wanted to more about chomsky ... this 'for beginners' book gave me a complete and fascinating primer on all aspects of his work -- as a linguist, as a social commentator and as an intellectual. it was exactly the breadth i need with the depth i wanted ... it covers everything in detail, but doesn't get bogged down with details ... so you can clearly understand the content and find out what parts you want to study more! Every 'for beginners' book is quality ... but this one was exceptional.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
