In this book, the journalist (who covered the death with Osama Bin Laden in first person) lives the exodus sheltered in first person, from the places of origin as Syria, Afghanistan or Sudan of the South to countries which they welcome massive fields of refugees, as Jordan. Testimonies, perspective and crudity.

Columns with wood that seem of soccer but speak of any other thing with the naturalness and fluidity of the best national contributors.

ISIS, the return of the jihad (Patrick Cockburn)

The man who was there (George Plimpton)

Work compilation of one of the most versatile and prestigious reporters of the history of mass media. Journalism, test and Literature are diluted and intercrossed in a book with the best thing of an author acclaimed by illustrious as Norman Mailer or Ernest Hemingway. One of the most powerful voices of the North American media, capable to touch all the woods and with a domain of thematic as different as the sports (bode, american football or baseball, among others), the policy and the trips.

These books of journalists are only five examples between the interminable ocean, but without a doubt they are a good starting point to pass full moments of learning and entertainment during this spring.
