I've been using this book alongside Warren Wiersbe's "Be Determined" and Raymond Brown's BST "The Message of Nehemiah". Three very contrasting styles, each drawing out different points. I've been really helped by these three books to understand Nehemiah in a way that I hadn't before, despite having read Nehemiah several times, and heard sermons on it many times over the years. Stan Ever's book is easy to read and gives a good insight into Nehemiah. Brown's is a deeper read and Wirsbe has some very thought provoking comments. I would recommend each one, but better still all three together.
