I’ll give this two stars for the explanations of Israel’s historic foundations — extremely interesting. For his admirers and critics alike, he has produced a compelling memoir and an intriguing study of power. From a purely literary point of view, this is without doubt the best autobiography written by an Israeli prime minister. I referred to both while reading and found they not only provide geo-political detail, but also aide in centering the narrative from the perspective of tiny Israel to the world at large.

He is the brother of Israeli Special Forces commander Yonatan Netanyahu, who died during a hostage rescue mission, and Iddo Netanyahu, an Israeli author and playwright. A warm, unsentimental and beautifully-observed book for our times' Lucy Caldwell, author of These Days 'If I were in bother I'd want the Ballybrady bunch at my back. Although writing a book of this length is an achievement, the writing is plodding, despite the exciting things he's lived through. Bibi took me to another crash course of Israel, not the one that I read in the bible, not that we have been reading about and hearing on the news. All of his arguments and comments about the changes he made work very well within the context of the capitalist system.

And he also provided lots of details about his negotiations with Obama with regard to the Palestinian conflict. Though each US Presidential Administration from President Truman on is discussed, the climax of the narrative comes in Chapter 54, fittingly titled “Never Again,” where Mr. Starting in Russia, Netanyahu’s direct progenitors crisscross the globe with notable stops in the United States, Great Britain, throughout Europe, and the city that is the focus of their aspirations, Jerusalem. Nothing is canceled or woke but the importance of Israel on the world stage and especially to America is clearly visible.

When I entered the cabinet room for the new government’s first meeting, I was astonished to see that the cabinet table was laden with a sumptuous breakfast: omelets, cheese, various breads, tomatoes, cucumbers, jams, butter, and cakes and cookies galore. Plus, I kept getting interrupted by compulsions to arrange stuffed menageries into ominous tableaus, so that probably didn’t help my focus. This is an amazing and ongoing story that will be reviewed by probably more detractors than admirers. In the book, I encountered a cautious leader who is committed to ‘non-extremism’ and is proud of the resources his governments have invested in Arab communities. He clearly glosses over some glaringly blatant controversies throughout his entire career like he's affair with Fleur Cates and him cheating on Sarah in the 90s with his makeup artist.

It goes back to the mists of the Abrahamic covenant, the exodus from Egyptian slavery, the conquest of pagan Canaanite tribes descendant from Noah, and the Davidic Kingdom, whose star waves on the Israeli flag today over the city of Jerusalem, which was first made capital under King David. I have always been a great admirer of Netanyahu and would highly recommend this book to anyone, whether you like him or not, as this book is rich in the history of the Jewish community, Israel, and the Middle East.
