There are two sides to every storyReviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 March 2015
Our UK media gives a coherent view of world events. For example, an aeroplane crashes and within hours we all know Putin did it. However, if you were to follow up one of these stories a few months later you would wonder how we knew so quickly. Where the evidence was or at least the black box. This book gives you an insight into how the east views the west. Particularly big events like wars. Especially US UK and NATO humanitarian bombing of countries who don't do what is in the U.S. govt best interest regarding oil, gas and finance. It makes for very uncomfortable reading. Very uncomfortable. Until I read this book my world view made no real sense. Not because I am thick but because I think too much. Now I do understand. I appreciate the 'other sides point of view'. The U.S. govt not only uses its media and military to coerce middle east countries. They also try against China, Europe and the UK. (TTIP and TTP.) One example, genetically modified food. In the supposed land of the free, U.S., you are supposed to eat and accept genetically modified food. Should we accept TTP, then so will we. So, who is my enemy? Monsanto, who exert undue influence over the U.S. govt or Putin? Should a UK government sign the U.S. trade deal and expose me to what was previously illegal. Would that make the UK government my enemy? The book has opened my eyes. The world now makes sense but I don't feel as secure as I did. Consider it a book for adults contrasted against the BBC news a pretend adult news show for older children. Read this book if you think there are two sides to every story and you would like to read about the alternative.

Pepe Escobar is an excellent writer. his literary skills take the reader to where-ever he is describing...this isn't a traditional book per se, but 5 years worth of Pepe's roving reporter column for the Asia times..his style is inimitable...just buy it!
