I listened to Ricks hawking his book on NPR and C-SPAN. He really is a very seductive used-car salesman. One of the best revisionists I've heard to date. He gives this really down-homey kind of account of all the people that have died there and how great the turn around has been in Iraq. He doesn't mention how much hate we have generated. He spends most of his time name-dropping and credit-carding on other people. Sounds like another book, Passages, that I once read., The first chapter was fantastic, the rest was pure trash. I not only read the book, I took a psychology class that used the book as text.
