2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Janet on May 19, 2015
Format: Kindle Edition
I really found this collection of essays fascinating. Each had cogent arguments and well crafted points. I had recently watched the Oscar Winning Documentary which made this even more interesting as I had just that little bit of extra background on the players. I think I would recommend this to several of our book discussion groups, as I certainly wanted to talk about the opinions and facts raised in these essays.
