Publisher Description

From Michael Korda, author of the New York Times bestselling Eisenhower biography Ike and the captivating Battle of Britain book With Wings Like Eagles, comes the critically-acclaimed definitive biography of T. E. Lawrence—the legendary British soldier, strategist, scholar, and adventurer whose exploits as “Lawrence of Arabia” created a legacy of mythic proportions in his own lifetime. Many know T.E. Lawrence from David Lean’s Oscar-winning 1962 biopic—based, itself, upon Lawrence’s autobiographical Seven Pillars of Wisdom—but in the tradition of modern biographers like John Meacham, David McCullough, and Barbara Leaming, Michael Korda’s penetrating new examination reveals new depth and character in the twentieth century’s quintessential English hero.

Bill P. (Uke noob) ,

Highly recommended.

Wonderful account of the life of one of the most interesting and fascinating individuals of modern times. That said, this is also the worst electronic version of a book I have ever come across. The staggering amount of mis-capitalisations, missing spaces and other formatting errors are astounding. Even so, completely recommended for anyone interested in the life of T.E. Lawrence.

Great story,terrible print job

Did no one edit or type proof this book? The sloppy printing takes a great deal of pleasure away when reading this amazing story. Shame on this publisher.

Hagiography

Only read the sample available, the over the top hero worship by the author convinced me that i did not want to buy the book. Just read the Seven Pillars of Wisdom and make your own judgements.
