The book came out this month in Australia and New Zealand, and has its first Antipodean review courtesy of the Otago Daily Times.  This one comes with a health warning:  "This is a book those of delicate disposition should avoid...As well as writing stylishly about the complicated fabric of Middle East quarrels, this brave author also dips into the past history of a region which is unlikely ever to know lasting peace. "

Back in the UK, the Manchester Evening News made it their Book of the Week recently, and had this to say: "Amid the brutality and the horror there is also humanity and humour and that’s what makes this book, whose timely publication in paperback comes as the Israel/Gaza conflict is back in the headlines, so readable. It’s authoritative and well balanced."
