4.0 out of 5 stars THE WANDERING WHO, by Gilad Atzmon, 3 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very courageous and honest book, well written and easy to read considering the seriousness of the subject.

The book provided me with a lot of new and useful information. I would have given it the full 5-Stars had the author touched on the subject of the mafia of the financial institutions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exposing the plight of a people, 9 Sep 2012
Freedom Sailors: The Maiden Voyage of the Free Gaza movement and how we succeeded in spite of ourselves.
Freedom Sailors is not a book about high litterature, it's not a book you read to learn from in the litterary sense of the word.; it is a book you feel, a book you experience, brought to life by those who wrote it, a diverse group of unique human beings, brought together by a common desire, a mission, a conviction to expose the truth.

Freedom Sailors is the story of some 40 people of different nationalities and backgrounds, ranging in age between 20 plus to 80 plus breaking a siege of about 40 years. They achieved, peacefully, 2 major human rights issues: raising awareness to the plight of the Palestinians in Gaza, the biggest jail in the world, and the merciless cruelty of Israel whose claim to democracy is stripped naked.

I can't count the times my adrenaline levels shot up through the roof as those brave people, through their accounts written in a refreshingly unpretentious style, allowed me into their very souls, to share their fears, their hopes, their perseverence and efforts to " stay human", despite their individuality and egos.

Were I to take s single book to a desert island, it will undoubtedly be Freedom Sailors.
