I wasn't very impressed with this book. I felt it lacked objectivity and was a bit too drawn out in numerous cases. The author seemed to have an axe to grind with the Bush administration. While I am not very sympathetic
with the Bush administration's management of the war, this book appears to be just one of many liberal denunciations of the war. In other words, I really didn't learn much new. I also prefer to read more balanced accounts of contemporary history.

A rhetoric-free look at the failings of the Iraqi invasion.
I cant recommend this film enough. A clear and balanced look at the grave miscalculations made before and during our occupation of Iraq. Everyone should see this film: Dem and Repub alike.

LONG. Read it? Skim it? No subject index.
From a practical standpoint: this fat book, which consists of excerpts from interviews, may invite reading or skimming by the dedicated citizen. It does not, however, invite consultation about specific subjects of interest, because it has only an index of names, and no subject index. That's just plain third rate, and difficult to justify. Maybe it was infected by the movie-making process -- hey! movies don't have indexes! -- but the world of non-fiction books expects subject indexes, for good reason.

Charles Ferguson's update of his superb film on the Bush war in Iraq captures the problems of the current White House to a tee. Ferguson gives over his book to interviews with top players and it works perfectly. Let them talk and you know the score. This is a terrific book and I recommend it highly.

Devastating expose of war's incompetence
This was an enjoyable and informative read. Ferguson avoids preaching to the reader; he lets the interviews speak for themselves. All of the incompetence of the occupation comes out in the book. He interviews top officials, not just low-level sniping critics. This book succeeds marvelously. Pick this up ASAP for the good of your country.
