I don’t usually do this, but I’ve had two books which I have reviewed this year which have really stood out to me.

War and Terrorism opened up a new world for me in terms of dealing with the issues at hand from a variety of angles. It is very fitting to read this book from time to time in order to deal with the issues which we are promised to face for the rest of this century.

Andy‘s book, well, as I was sinking deep into the despair of cynicism, it came at the right time. I actually thought that this book was going to justify my cynicism and tell me how to continue to be both a cynic and a saint. But you know, it didn’t. Instead, it woke me up to the direction in which I was heading. It is a powerful little book which I think everyone needs to read – the idealist and the cynic.
