"Extraordinary...nothing else like it. There is no better guide. Indispensable for understanding Israel." --Brian Williams, NBC News
"Martin Fletcher is more than the consummate journalist. He is a master storyteller. In Walking Israel he gives us a special gift - a real sense of himself and his passion for the land and the people who are much more than the sum of their conflicts. This book offers a sense of place about a country so many around the world love." --David Gregory, Moderator, "Meet the Press"
"Th[e] kaleidoscope of perspectives allows readers to glimpse an Israel too complex to reduce to the familiar script of interethnic strife...A much-needed corrective to media stereotypes." --Booklist
"Spectacular and unique." --The Jewish Herald Voice
"This book is about the other Israel, the Israel that the news organizations... ignore on the way to covering yet another tragedy." --Associated Press
