Reviews

"All in all a successful narrative, though overlong on military exploits and personal vignettes and short on analysis of the massive changes in Arabian society."-- Publishers Weekly

"Darlow and Bray convey the essence of the man as well as the stark, unforgiving landscape that he mastered while forging a nation." --Booklist

"An entertainingly exhaustive, though imperfect, biography of an inscrutable monarch." --Kirkus Reviews
