The Great Unraveling

I recently read another book, "The Great Unraveling", by Paul Krugman. This 2005 book largely consists of reprints of Krugman's New York Times columns. I was not reading his column at the time so most of the material was new to me. Still I found the book disappointing. Many of the columns are about hot issues of the day and have little lasting interest. And when grouped together by theme they can be quite repetitive.

The book makes the general argument that Bush couldn't do anything right. I actually tend to agree but that doesn't mean I feel a need to read 400 pages of examples. I would advise skipping this book.
