Well written and never boring, but also not quite as juicy as I had hoped. I read this as I was interested in an insiders view of the run up to the Iraq war - you do get that, but it is just a small part of the book. However the insight you get into the daily workings of the international political machine, with a smattering of nice little anecdotes makes this a worthwhile and captivating read. ( )
