I don't normally endorse books but I've been given a copy of this one by the publisher and I have to say it is excellent.

This is a huge full colour illustrated book, packed with much more historical information than your average coffee table book and the only Alexander book that Oliver Stone has actually endorsed. It is certainly one of the better ones that I have read.

Hello Everyone,
Kevin -
I bought this book about a month ago and savoured it over a two week period.
It is great and there are no mistakes or misspellings or wrong dates in it; that's unusual today, as most books are published in a slipshod way. No proofreading.
But, I would echo your endorsement and highly recommend it also.
Happy reading!!!!
Regards,
Larry

Very nice layout and some wonderful pictures. Unfortunately, Ms. Foreman does not have the proper background on her subject matter as their are historical inaccuracies in this book.

Nonetheless, a very good concept and wonderful quality.
