Chosen from the 2012 National Magazine Awards finalists and winners, this anthology is filled with compelling features and profiles, eye-opening reporting, and incisive criticism and analysis of contemporary culture and society. Written by today's leading journalists, the selections cover a range of developments in politics, international affairs, culture, and business―from the increasingly short shelf lives of celebrity marriages to the ongoing fallout from Wall Street's financial malpractice, from the insidious effects of the lingering wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the resurgent battle over issues pertaining to women's safety and health. Always engaging and informative, Best American Magazine Writing 2012 is an incomparable resource for the most noteworthy journalism and literary achievements of the year.Essays include Lawrence Wright (The New Yorker) on the history of Scientology and recent challenges to its mission and methods; Matthieu Aikins (The Atlantic) on the shady dealings and shifting sands of the war in Afghanistan; the late Christopher Hitchens (Vanity Fair) on the physical and emotional toll of cancer; and Joel Stein (Time) on the propensity for politicians and other popular figures to get into trouble on the Internet. John Jeremiah Sullivan (GQ) immerses himself in David Foster Wallace's curious legacy; Tim Crothers (ESPN) follows the inspiring story of Phiona Mutesi, a chess prodigy from the slums of Uganda; Chris Ballard (Sports Illustrated) recounts Dewayne Dedmon's struggle to reconcile his faith with a career in sports; Wesley Yang (New York) explores the pressure on Asian Americans to succeed and the psychological and cultural consequences when they don't; and Luke Dittrich (Esquire) shares the raw experiences of those who survived one of 2011's worst natural disasters: the tornado that hit Joplin, Missouri. The sparkling dialogue and vividly imagined, eccentric characters of Karen Russell's award-winning short story, "The Hox River Window" (Zoetrope: All-Story), rounds out the collection.

I wasn't in love with every selection, but overall this was a very enjoyable read. I particularly liked "The Apostate," "Arms and the Dudes," the story about Anonymous, and "The Hox River Window." However, even the pieces that I didn't love were worth reading. I would recommend this for anyone that enjoys reading nonfiction writing.

Read for class but a good read for fun. One or two stories that received honors weren't worthy but that's a personal opinion. The 9/11 one will make you tear.
Valawye
I always enjoy this annual collection, both for the quality of the writing and for the variety of topics covered.
Qutalan
I enjoyed this book very much.
Short quick stories to read make it easy even
when there isn't a lot of time.

Unlike the 2011 version, this one features "long form" articles, including Lawrence Wright's investigation of the Church of Scientology ("The Apostate") as well as superb final essays by Christopher Hitchens.

This poorly designed volume reprints wonderful work by Luke Dittrich on the Joplin tornado, Lawrence Wright on a longtime adherent's difficult break with Scientology, and excellent offerings from Wesley Yang, Chris Hitchens, and some others. Some of the "winners" left me cold, but taste varies, I suppose. The book wastes 30-some pages listing people associated with the project. (Important to them, not important to me) It's a good companion for a flight across the country.
Easy read. Fun read. Great resource to have. Good variety. A lot of stories in one book. I enjoyed it.
