I second that; it was one of the first ebooks I bought, and I think it is excellent.
Perhaps a little off topic, but A People's History of the United States
by Howard Zinn is also in high repute. And Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control
by Medea Benjamin, one of my favourite people in all the world, is as good and as scary as Jane Myer's Book.
