"Finkelstone"s title alone forewarns the reader that the book is more hagiography than dispassionate analysis."
"Sadat"s friends will like this book; his foes, depending on their demeanor, will grimace or sneer. Those who seek to fathom the vision and the daring will have to wait."
Jewish Chronicle- " Finkelstone"s book will help to enable the reader to make an informed judgement of Mr Sadat"s legacy"
The Tablet- " Finkelstone"s objectivity is refreshing
