Although T. E. Lawrence, commonly known as Lawrence of Arabia, died in 1935, the story of his life has captured the imagination of succeeding generations. Seven Pillars of Wisdom is a monumental work in which he chronicles his role in leading the Arab Revolt against the Turks during the First World War. A reluctant leader, and wracked by guilt at the duplicity of the British, Lawrence nevertheless threw himself into his role, suffering the blistering desert conditions and masterminding military campaigns which culminated in the triumphant march of the Arabs into Damascus.

    " Not an easy read, but beautiful language, and imperative for any scholar to take to Jordan. Lawrence's evocative descriptions of key sites in Jordan should definitely be read in conjunction with experiencing these places in person. The same goes for important personnel that feature in his story. Fortunately the book has comprehensive indexes so you can easily find the appropriate passages quickly. "

    " You must read this. The truly mind boggling thing is he lost the original manuscript and wrote this from memory. As a history of his involvement in the campaign it is fascinating, but the real gem is in his writing, not a wasted word, hard work, but my god a tour de force of English literature. "

    " I really enjoyed the way that Lawrence wrote his book, but I found his content hard to follow and poorly structured. "

    " A great read, gives tremendous insight into the arrogance of hubris of the British adventurers who sowed the seeds of the ongoing troubles. "
