5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal storytelling of a paradigm-shifting event, May 4, 2011
This review is from: The Instigators (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
I bought this piece expecting I would read it later--maybe tonight, maybe over a couple of evenings before bed--yet an hour has gone by and not only have I already plowed through it, I've also found myself rereading entire sections.

Wolman gives us a backstage tour of a revolution years in the making. The details are so specific, so well-researched, so vibrant, that I occasionally forgot that I was reading nonfiction. If you followed the events in Egypt as they unfolded, and even (especially?) if you didn't, I highly recommend this fascinating piece.

I have to wholeheartedly agree. It's fascinating to see such a definitive, blow-by-blow insider account of the real difference that social media made in the Egyptian revolution. I must admit to being initially skeptical of the difference tools such as Facebook made in such movements. Wolman lays out an incredibly detailed and informative chronology to show otherwise. A really excellent read.
