      Didn't even really start reading it before I noticed I don't want to. His thesis seems to be that airports aren't secure because they randomly choose passengers for extra screening, and don't just screen anyone who looks different (ie. muslims). Not only is this a fairly offensive idea, and totally goes against all the freedoms I thought the US stood for, it's actually counter-productive, because it becomes easy for anyone else to get past security. So I guess I wasted my money on it.
