This is the first book by Chomsky I read. To be precise this is a collection of Chomsky’s answers in a radio talkshow to listeners’ questions. From this answers you get Chomsky’s interpretation of the last century facts. You may not agree, nonetheless his interpretation is very fitting. Definitively a worth reading. What I didn’t like is that the Italian publisher added his entries in the associations list provided by Chomsky at the end of the book. The result is that you cannot distinguish from which are recommended by Chomsky and which are recommended by the publisher. I won’t add much because I think it is better everyone form his/her own opinion on this stuff.
