This book flows from story to story telling the history of Israel not like a history book but instead an ongoing story that continues today.

Cohen provides great insight into the dynamic and long, long history that is Judaism and Israel. Cohen's writing is funny, poetic, and informative. Unfortunately, at times, the writing is a little long-winded; however, if you want the nitty-gritty, fear not. The narration is fantastic.

What did you like most about Israel Is Real?
This is a funny book. Parts are waxing lyrical, poetic and full of flowing words like river is full of water. Between are hard facts and exceptionally clever analysis. Together this blend forms an interesting narration, enjoyable and yet informative.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
You can't make a film of this book. It might be chronological narration but you just can't sqiz it into that form without killing the subject.
Any additional comments?
As long as you remember there is a lot of poetic language separating hard facts and analysis, you'll enjoy it immensely. And this is not a PC book, there are some harsh truths and some uncomfortable ones as well. Well balanced and multifaceted.
An excellent book. Entertaining and informative. Brilliantly read by Jonathan Davis. One of the most enjoyable audiobooks I have listened to and I highly recommend it for anyone who is interested in Israel, past or present.
