One observation, the kindle edition at least, would be enhanced by a series of historical maps of the region. Having a decent atlas to hand might help before you start to read!
It is fairly well written. One minor complaint is that the author handles chronology poorly, jumping back and forth and time but not making it clear enough when they return to a point in the time line they have already covered, and start to describe the same event a second time. Would have been helped by a few "as we have seen", "as previously mentioned" phrases at the very least. I get the feeling that the author is an intelligent person, but not an experienced writer or historian, but this is acknowledged more or less in the beginning, and is not necessarily a bad thing.
The book is largely unbiased, but does seem to focus a bit more time explaining Israeli atrocities, and a little less time on the Palestinian suicide bombings and the fact that so many Palestinians look positively against suicide bombers that have killed innocent civilians including children. Apart from that, I don't know enough about the subject to comment on any omissions, errors or whatever that their may or may not be.
The author's proposed solution to where to draw his proposed new border lines a bit confused me and I couldn't figure out where he would fit Gaza. A clearer map showing this would have helped.
Also, if you're looking for an academic book, it is not the one for you (for example, he does not systematically mention all his sources, sometimes, you won't know if it's a proven fact or just a theory), and by the author own admission.
