    Most enjoyable.

    Quite enjoyable, entertaining, tasteful in a provocative, seductive way. I believe I will try his other book as well.

    Fascinating!

    I have not read anything by this author before, but if his other books are half as good as this one, I'll be ordering them shortly. This story is more truth than fiction, and the author has been kind enough to list his sources at the end of the book (although I think he may have missed a few). As such, the story underscores the media's (TV, newspapers, etc.,) fear and unwillingness in reporting to the American people and the rest of the free world, the true, underlying agenda our government has adopted; choosing instead to white-wash the reasons it (Washington) spends billions of dollars of taxpayer money on programs such as the badly misnamed 'The War on Drugs' (this is the main theme of the book), when Washington's real intent and silent objective is focussed squarely on exploiting Latin American oil reserves and satisfying the big oil companies. The book exposes some (certainly not all, otherwise it would thousands of pages long) of these myths in such a way as to be quite entertaining and suspensful. I greatly enjoyed reading it, although it intesified my disdain for politics which is, perhaps, not what anyone needs during an election year (I'm already sick and tired of the wrangling). I give the book a full five stars.
