5.0 out of 5 stars Bemused by the One Star Review, December 10, 2010
By 
This review is from: Aftermath: Following the Bloodshed of America's Wars in the Muslim World (Hardcover)
I do not feel myself qualified to write an exacting review of Aftermath, but I simply had to post a small piece in counter-distinction to the only other available customer review, which I found vapid and deliberately misleading.

Aftermath is absolutely essential reading for anyone curious about the history and current affairs of geopolitical activity in the Middle East. Rosen writes in a style which I found perfectly suited to both the material and its urgency. There is simply no better single source of information on this topic.

Unlike your review the one-star review actually went into great detail why he gave the book one-star. Your "review" is nothing of the sort...it's just unexplained adulation. I really hate this Amazon war of reviews...someone posts a one-star review so a fan of the author posts a five star review in order to "balance" things.

Let's please act like adults shall we? Did you even read the book? If so explain to us why it deserves a five star review.

Rosen's book is awful, and yes, I bought it -- see my full review here on Amazon. It is THE single worst book I have read on the Middle East.

To Mike Hunt: You hit the bulls-eye with your comment. Morover, the surprisingly high number of people who are voting consistently in large numbers to declare that critical reviews and comments on this particular book are "unhelpful" make me wonder if some kind of mobilization of loyalists is underway to boost the sale of this book and make the critics look irresponsible. I don't notice such a huge outpouring of "unhelpfuls" in the many other books I peruse on Amazon.

My first sentence indicates that I am not qualified to review the book.

Perhaps you ought to read it again; it's not very long.
