1.0 out of 5 stars Do not bother to buy this very poor revision of a rather poor original book 31 Aug. 2013
By D. Jameson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a revised version of a book written more than ten years ago. Unfortunately the revision is based on interviews that were conducted at about the same time the original edition was published so there is no updated material relevant to current conditions. Not only that, the added content is very thin, leaving the impression that the entire additional portion, consisting of a few very short chapters, could have been written in one or two days. The original version was not earth shattering but the revised one is a huge disappointment. I cannot see why anyone would want to read it, much less spend money to purchase it. For anyone looking to find relevant information on contemporary Cambodia and its leader this is a big let down. It amply reflects one of the reasons that the country is sometimes lightheartedly called "Scambodia".

1.0 out of 5 stars Good press can be bought 10 Sept. 2014
By M. E. Dungo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This proves that anybody can write a biography for the right amount of money. This kind of journalism does not do history any favors.
