Editorial Reviews

Review

" . . . Dear President Bush, is the best of the three books by or about Cindy Sheehan that I've read." -- Opednews.com, David Swanson

" . . . a new collection of letters, essays, and speeches . . . most compelling when she returns to the specifics of her struggle." -- San Francisco Bay Guardian, May 2006

"a glimpse . . . behind the media figure and the sense of purpose she feels . . . born of inconsolable grief." -- San Francisco Magazine, May 2006

I have meet Cindy, she has paid a price that few will ever know for this war. The book is a good read and asks the questions that need to be answered.

Sad that some are using Amazon as nothing more than a place to trash an American hero. Buy the book, them give a rating you hacks!

Well, some reviewers who are warmongers obviously have their agendas and their activists who have not read the books they are reviewing. They are part of the Neo-Con conspiracy to keep the American public in the dark about the truth. I am the author of "Land of Childhood's Fears" - a book about the Vietnam War - (just google the title and see) and so I speak with a bit of authority. This book is so heart-wrenching that I had to read it in short sessions. It is a glaring example of the attitude of the current administration - THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT US - THEY NEVER CARED ABOUT ANYTHING BUT THEIR OWN GREED. My Web site has video Documentaries you can download FREE - So before you buy the negative reviews on Cindy Sheehan, learn the TRUTH. Read this book, and my book "Land of Childhood's Fears" which you can also get at Amazon. Take a week to read these two books, and your views about the war in Iraq will drastically change - download the videos from my web site and your entire paradigm structure about the country you live in will change. In the Bible, 2 Peter Chapter 3, it says that in the last days, people are "WILLINGLY IGNORANT". It is a shame that people don't WANT to learn the truth, because what they would have to do to ACT on that truth is unthinkable.

The book is not wonderfully written, but the message is poignant. Looking back, we can see that Sheehan was indeed correct, and that the war in Iraq was a pure sham, contributing to the near bankruptcy of our country and resulting in hundreds of thousands of deaths (yes, my friends, more than just U.S. troops were killed). As the reviews make clear, many have come to this book as a result of Conservative media's relentless hatred of Cindy Sheehan. Sean Hannity et al.have made a wonderful fortune through their shrill jingoism, and will never understand the sacrifice that Sheehan has made, nor will they ever ask themselves the tough questions about the U.S.A., it's actions, and the repercussions of our collective complacency.

One of the negative reviews says:

"If you don't like the way the country is run and the people who voted to get them there...leave!"

Ah, a classic revision of the age-old aphorism "love it or leave it", one of the most logically irrational phrases that one can utter.

Indeed, we love this country, we want to vote people in who will run it in a way that contributes to the collective benefit of the entire world, and the Earth itself. As for myself, I do not 'hate' the 'people who voted to get them there'. Many of those people are confused, scared, ill-informed, and the sum of their political analysis has been fed to them by radio pundits who have risen from disc jockey college dropouts (Rush) and unexceptional ex-construction workers (Hannity). Any rational assessment of these barking dogs can lead to only one conclusion -- not qualified to assess complicated global issues.

THIS is a heartfelt, well written book.NO one who did in fact 'actually read it' OR who ever heard Cindy speak in person like my wife and I (both M.D.'s) haveCould call her 'rambling' or incoherent. That statement is nothing but sheer BALONEY.Also ... Cindy represents a "small minority" ???What CAVE have you been living in? The election THIEF is down to below 30% approval in ALL categories.Cindy represents MOST Americans, and is not a 'stay on the sidelines and do nothing' person = God bless her efforts (and the upcoming movie about her starring Oscar winner Susan Sarandon will do very well).The insincere people writing below need to GET OVER their envy of this woman (Telling someone else to 'go home and grieve' or 'shut up' could not BE more unAmerican ! Fortunately our founding fathers refused to do either of those.)Who has spoken all over the planet, is greatly admired in both America and Europe andHas made a difference in changing minds, to get this 'blood for oil' phony war ENDED.

at the response below telling us not to buy Cindy's book. First of all....TOO LATE!!! I already have it and it was wonderful...well written and straight from the heart......which is why the rightwingers can't comprehend it...they have no heart. The last sentence was a real gem.....Cindy is "hurting our country". Last time I looked it is GEORGE W. BUSH who is president and it's HIS POLICIES that is hurting......ummm,I mean KILLING this country. Cindy has a right to speak out against bush,isn't that what the rightwingers are always telling us......the troops are fighting for our FREEDOMS...or is it just the rightwingers freedoms they are fighting for? If the right would use all that energy they spend on hatred and bitterness for a good cause they would feel a whole lot better. That big chip they carry around on their shoulders has to be a burden. With 30% approval rating that bush has,you rightwing folks are the ones in the minority. Get over it already. Your party is toast.
