    Review quote
    "A writer with the ability to make you think. . . . Few express better the sheer perplexity of Americans today." --"The New York Times Book Review ""Eminently worth reading. . . . More than the reporting--often brilliant--and more than the access to insiders, it is [Friedman's] ability to see a few big truths steadily and whole that makes him the most important columnist in America today." --"The New York Times ""For historical context, both before and after September 11, I can't think of a more useful and informative book." --Susan Larson, "The Times-Picayune ""A valuable work. . . . Few writers have a better grasp than Thomas L. Friedman of the dimensions of America's war on terrorism. . . . He is a brilliant reporter [who] has revolutionized foreign-affairs punditry." --"The Baltimore Sun ""A writer with the ability to make you think. . . . Few express better the sheer perplexity of Americans today." -"The New York Times Book Review " "For historical context, both before and after September 11, I can't think of a more useful and informative book." -Susan Larson, "The Times-Picayune " "A valuable work. . . .
