Things which you may not consider important and ignore in your interactions are reminded in this work and you can see the impact of a minimal change when you follow some of the points.

The one shocking point about this thriller is that "it might be true"... Of course this story is not true, but the characters and the events might easily have happened separately!!



Highly recommended!

Unbelievably good

Honestly, I did not expect this book to be so good! Excellent! You feel as if you know all these people and the casual way he describes his encounters with world leaders and the essence of their personalities are beautiful.

He has some stereotypical views against some parts of the world, but I am not sure if I can blame the writer as the initial aim might have been to write a funny book about all people who look innocent on their face but are not in their mind.



Highly recommended.

A must read book, despite the vast differences in the situation, still the description of the personalities and the way the heroes are introduced to the reader are excellent. I watched the movie afterwards and as usual was not as good as the book.
