This anthology of writings associated with the American Invasion of Iraq, Mr. Dyer has demonstrated clear visions of what the current mess and how it relates to the mind of an informed Canadian. To a man with a naval background, a great deal of American foreign policy in that time period, appeared very odd indeed. A book for the library of those interested in the pressures on the USA in today's world. ( )

A collection of newspaper article written by Dyer between 2001 and 2005. Dyer is an excellent writer and his articles pack a much history, strategy, and comment into 850 word as you can imagine. In this collection he actually comments on ways he was right and wrong at the time he wrote the article - and these notes, as well as the writings on journalism as a craft at the beginning and end of the book - are highlights. As a Canadian living in the US it was refreshing to read the other perspective on the Bush government and American-Isreali relations. Mind you I bought the book in Canada... ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0679314032, Paperback)

This essential collection contains the best of Gwynne Dyer’s writing on the post–September 11 world.

Since 1973, writer, historian and filmmaker Gwynne Dyer has written a widely syndicated newspaper column on international affairs, regularly published in 45 countries. With Every Mistake is not only a collection of the very best of Dyer’s recent work, but an examination of how, time and again, the media skews fact and opinion, wielding formidable influence on how we all shape our own thoughts. And why is so much of the information wrong? Is it herd instinct, official manipulation, robber-baron owners with ideological obsessions — or just the conflict between the inherently bitty, short-term nature of news reporting and analysis and the longer perspectives needed to understand what is actually going on? How much misinformation stems from simple ignorance and laziness?

With Every Mistake combines an examination of how powerful owners mould the agendas of the press with a self-critique of Dyer’s own columns from the three and a half years between 9/11 and the January 2005 election in Iraq. How hard is it to get things right, and why do so many people in the media get things wrong?
