Imagine the informed Thomas Friedman (of the The World is Flat), the provocative Christopher Hitchens (The Trial of Henry Kissinger) and the witty Maureen Dowd (Bush World) producing daily commentaries on international current events. And that is what Anthony Livingston Hall, author of the The iPINIONS Journal weblog, offers in this riveting review of the major events of 2005.

So, if you're tired of partisan talking points masquerading as informed debate, this book is your refuge from those screaming pundits and political hacks. This book is your opportunity to be provoked into thinking about the important events of our time from an objective and rational perspective.

Hall's refreshing world stems from his Caribbean heritage, American education and genuine compassion-all of which are reflected in his insightful articles.
