It’s now on sale for $10.80, and the e-book on all sites is even more affordable.   Some of the key subjects, including whether Israel’s air force might attack Iran — and what Israel has already been doing covertly inside Iran — are in the headlines right now, around the world.


The latest reviews posted at Amazon.com (where all twelve give the book a maximum 5-star rating) include one by a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and memoirist, Kai Bird — an American writer, living abroad, who is now working on a biography of the CIA’s top man in the Middle East, Robert Ames, who was killed when the U.S. Embassy in Beirut was blown up.   Here are the latest reviews:


5.0 out of 5 stars  An invaluable contribution, August 13, 2012
5.0 out of 5 stars An invaluable contribution, August 13, 2012ByKai Bird (Kathmandu, Nepal) – See all my reviewsRaviv and Melman have written a wonderful history of Mossad. It reads like a thriller, but conveys a thorough history of the Israeli intelligence agency. The story is told through eyes sympathetic to the Israeli narrative, but the authors do not hesitate to write critically about Mossad’s mistakes, bungles and misjudgments. Their sources are wide and deep. It is astonishing how many old spies have agreed to divulge their stories to Raviv and Melman. The book is extremely timely, not only for its discussion of Mossad’s on-going attempt to derail the Iranian nuclear project, but also for the light the authors shed on Mossad’s operations against Lebanon’s Hezbollah. The book is an invaluable contribution to the literature on intelligence.

–Kai Bird, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of Crossing Mandelbaum Gate: Coming of Age Between the Arabs and Israelis.


5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant read, August 11, 2012


Claude Fletcher (Kingstown, St Vincent & The Grenadines) – See all my reviews

This is an extremely well researched and well written book. I am very surprised that the writers had access to such detailed and obviously secret material. The writing is exceptional, it just gets more and more exciting. One would be hard pressed not to think this was fiction. I learned so much from this experience.
