    Sonu biraz oldu bitti gibi olmuş. Daha iyi bir toparlama yapılabilirdi. Ayrıca ilerleyiş de sıkıntılı gibi geldi biraz. Karışık ve üstü kapalı bir gidişat içinde. Daha iyisi yapılabilir diye düşünüyorum.

    This one felt a bit rushed to me? Or a bit particular about it subjects? But David B. is so fantastic and bold and surreal and all too real at the same time, so, worth it. YO. We really messed some stuff up, didn't we? This one felt a bit rushed to me? Or a bit particular about it subjects?

    The third volume in a fantastic trilogy on US/Middle East history. The first two covered the earliest days of the Republic to the end of the Cold War and this one covers modern history. It seems highly unlikely a fourth volume will come out any time soon, given that we're only one Bowie (five years) removed from the last volume, but if and when it does, I'll be sure to pick it up.

    Brilliant. Not a fan of the David B. most famous work, but here, it works really well.
