I actually will listen to it again because Ariel Sharon's life paralleled the entire span of Israeli history and from a young age he became a major figure. He had fought in, commanded in, saved, lead or ordered every war in Israeli history up until his stroke. He is the father of the settlements and of the pullout from Gaza.
His son Gilad, the author, had unparalleled access since he had all of his father's meticulous notes and records, was among his father's most trusted advisors and was actually in the room for a great deal of the stories he recounts
It is an excellent book and due to the importance of Ariel Sharon to Israeli history and the closeness of the author to his subject, I would strongly recommend it, regardless of your level of knowledge about broader Israeli history.

charasmatic, strong, leader
Would you be willing to try another book from Gilad Sharon? Why or why not?
maybe if I didn't have anything better to read
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Suicide bombers you can't live with them and you can't live without them.
Any additional comments?
Good book, well voiced, Gives a good picture of sharon's public lifebut almost nothing on his private life. I pray for Sharon he has been in a coma for 6 years now.
