Review of “All In: The Education of General David Petraeus

January 24, 2012

Apologies yet again for not having posted for awhile; expect continuation of the series on relationships between the UN aid agencies and World Bank soon.

In the meantime, you might be interested in my review, published today by the New York Journal of Books, of  All In: The Education of General David Petraeus by Paula Broadwell and Vernon Loeb. Just click on http://www.nyjournalofbooks.com/review/all-education-general-david-petraeus .

This is another book that I really wanted to like and learn from, but again was sorely disappointed. O’ well. My 3rd review of Wartime: An Idea, Its History, Its Consequences by Mary Dudziak for NYJB, to be published on February 7th, is much more favorable. Really, a very good book.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,500 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.
