To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As with most Chomsky books, really eye opening stuff. Edited into more bitesize points than some of his other books, so not too difficult for the beginner. Really important stuff to understand the world we live in and especially the way things are going lately, if you're not aware, you'll be manipulated to vote and act against your interests. Don't let it happen, buy the book!
I've given this 4 stars because Chomksy is always worth reading. Whether you agree with him or not, there's no deviousness in the way he sets his stall unlike with nearly every politician in every country. You take it or leave it.
My one gripe is that it is too repetitive because it is more or less a series of transcripts and dependent on what he is being asked about, hence the repetition. He always backs up his views with the evidence that he has gathered to support it and for that, cannot be faulted unlike some of the rent-a-quote people who have way too much influence on politics these days. As for journalists in the UK, they haven't got a clue in most cases apart from a very few honourable exceptions.
Wow, it's incredible! This man has straightened my thinking. If u want to understand news, Globalisation, free market, International trade, etc, I mean the faces behind words, just comfortably pick, sit n read. It's unbelievable the wickedness of some human beings!
This books is inspiring me to be more active and pick up a cause . We are Facing many issues from different fields so lot of work needs to be done. A clear and honest book that could help to understand better our Conditions and the Propaganda we live in .
I have read this book on the train to work for the last month if even 1/2 is true it is too depressing, but I guess it is something we always knew. This is the trouble with empirical politics. Rise up brother and let's start the revolution, or just assist the capitalist elite to their endgame.
