En sevdiğim Gibran kitabı değil, okunurken hala bir değer. Bu her yerde biraz ve takip etmek zor, akış o kadar iyi değil.

This book marks a new twist in my feelings about Christopher Matthews. When he was a secondary talking head and would show up on Sunday morning talk shows, I kinda liked him. He was a democrat with a maverick streak for acknowleding when the Republicans were making more sense then we were. I like the intellectual honesty that underlies that kind of behavior. Unfortunately, HARDBALL ruined that image for me. He morphed into a loud mouth more interested in hearing the sound of his own voice than even a thinly veiled charade of exchange. In that sense he seemed to be apeing a style that suits the viewers of Hannity and Rush more than it is likely to appeal those of us looking for different fare. Well, I don't know what to think of Chris Matthews now, because no matter how obnoxious he is as a television personality, this is a DAMN FINE BOOK. The prose is tight, fast-paced and compelling. The book is basically about the bizarre criss-crossing of the lives of John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon. The story truly has the makings of a Greek tragedy or Shakespearian history. Young friends from different backgrounds, with mutual admiration, spend the rest of their lives competing. But Nixon's basic insecurities eat him alive creating a life of defeats large and small to Kennedy and his ghost. You can not truly appreciate the election of 1960 and everything that comes after it until you read this book. It is well known to students of politics that Kennedy was a conservative Democrat, despite having taken on liberal icon status in death. Similarly, astute observes of Nixon will note that despite his villification by the left, he was really a liberal Republican. After reading this book, you really understand how similar the world view of these two men actually was. If you are even vaguely interested in these two men, I highly commend you to this fine book. It did well in sales, but it really is an important contribution to the understanding of this era, and should have been more widely lauded as a piece of history.

I thoroughly enjoyed Wildwood, which takes the reader on a wonderful journey around the world--to artists who use trees as their medium, to the walnut forests of Jalal Abad, back home to the elms and ash trees growing in his own hedgerow. One thing I particularly loved about the book was that it took me on numerous side trips as Deakin mentions or quotes from fiction and nonfiction works. Because of Wildwood I am now reading Hardy's The Woodlanders.
