I'm getting word that pre-ordered copies of Heads in the Sand are shipping out today. If you haven't ordered yours yet, hurry up! After all, what have I ever asked y'all to do for me? Nothing, that's what. Except to buy my book. Hendrick Hertzberg says it's "not just a razor-sharp analysis cum narrative of the politics of national security in general and the Iraq war in particular, it's also an enthralling and often very funny piece of writing." Jamie Kirchick, by contrast, says it sucks while Ezra Klein calls it "very serious, thoughtful argument that has never been made in such detail or with such care." Who are you going to trust?
