3.0 out of 5 stars Wicked, 26 Mar. 2012
You don't have to read any book on J.E.H. to know he was one wicked vengeful man, as are a large majority of men/women who enter politics..... the world over....Just look at the recent past in the U.K. the U.S. and the middle east....

PS
I did find it a good read for all that.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wrong Choice, 14 Feb. 2012
Definitively a wrong choice here for the great Sir Mac......

Rod has already been down this road with his old favorites with much success, and made 5 great CD's and and a couple of DVDs out of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 5 Jan. 2012
A good read but not up to the book of the same title in 2004 by Ann Rule who was commissioned and write her book during start of Ridgeways killing spree and as an ex cop was close to all those investigating the so called green River Killer including her friend Dave Reichert who led the investigation.

Maybe I am a bit biased as having read 28 of her true Crime books....

3.0 out of 5 stars FAIRLY GOOD READ, 21 Jan. 2011
A well written book for those who wish to know a little about a lot and a lot about nothing from a far left point of view.

Should really be serialised in Readers Digest if it was still in print.

1.0 out of 5 stars BORING, 14 Nov. 2010
It seems to me unless suffering from inadequate translation that this is a boring dreary book written by somebody who jumps from one thing to another without reason and why a whole chapter is dedicated to the kalashnikov I do no know...

3.0 out of 5 stars Yet another American Invasion, 9 Aug. 2010
Having just reread after a 2 year break George Packers "The Assassins Gate" I find it an excellent read showing that he pulled no punches writing this in depth look at yet another American invasion of a neutral country in their search for control over the worlds oil resources,dressed up as a move to introduce democracy [US style] in a country still living mainly in the middles ages.

This review is from: London Gangsters [DVD] (DVD)
Completely embarrassing listening to the 4 wise men ranting on about something they were on the fringe of..the real top criminals of the period are still unknown to the general public...
