Review: The Wizards of Armageddon

User Review  - Muhammad al-Khwarizmi - Goodreads

Quit about halfway through because I realized that this is material is far more biographical than I expected, that is more about the people than the issues than expected. Nonetheless "the issues" also get plenty of coverage and the material is altogether well-written. Read full review
