A quick search at Amazon for Antony Loewenstein's best-selling My Israel Question took me here, where the book is shown with five stars. Clicking on the link to the book shows something quite different: the book has been reviewed by four people, one gives it five stars, the others giving it one star -- that averages out to two stars. Interestingly, readers find the one star reviews helpful, with no one rating the five star review helpful. My Israel Question's Amazon ranking is 739,131.

Fittingly, Loewenstein did not win the $10,000 Gleebooks Prize for Critical Writing. Not to worry, as a best-selling author the money's gotta be rolling in.

Update: Due to demand (lack of) Amazon does not keep the book in stock:
Usually ships within 3 to 5 weeks.
The average ten-year old can write a better Israel book in that time.
