Where ever there is a cop beating on a guy...
He has a bit of a "me against the world" complex when it comes to living abroad in Paris, and although some parts had me laughing out loud, I had to plod through some dull dirt to get there. It wasn't quite what I expected, but mildly entertaining if you know anything about the French.
Really great adventure story. Worth it for the descriptions of bugs alone. And now Brad Pitt is tapped to play Percy Fawcett in the movie.
I found the discussion of international monetary policy enlightening - this was something I felt I needed to understand better, and it did clarify exchange rates and import/exports theories for me. But large chunks of the books are pretty dry, and I think there is too much focus on the authors' theory of "The Balkanization of Politics." I agree that there are sometimes too many interest groups and agencies trying to advance conflicting agendas, but I don't think the pages devoted to this topic was necessary. I just found myself getting bored quite often. The authors are clearly Republican, but for the most part I think they kept a partisan agenda out of their writing - that is, until the afterword, where the calls for privatized social security and dramatically lower taxes made me want to heave the book against a wall.
