Exhaustive (exhausting), and fascinating,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Wise Men: Six Friends and the World They Made (Paperback)
This book is fantastically interesting. The detail and the descriptions of personalities involved make the subject matter more than palatable, even to the less scholarly among us. The book is, however, very, very long and would have perhaps been better broken up into several volumes. I would characterize it as very well written, exhaustively researched, slightly fawning and uncritical at times, and, in general, well worth lugging around.
