Quotes & Awards

  • “Surprising reading...The biography vividly delineates the qualities a leader needs to excel today.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “If you didn’t know that this biography of Israeli general and political leader Ariel Sharon is read by Rich Topol, you’d swear it’s Sharon’s son, Gilad Sharon, doing the narration...Topol offers a solid, even intimate, reading...Bringing to life a book that portrays the man in a personal way, Topol’s conversational tone carries the listener along. He differentiates mood by raising his pitch slightly during light family-oriented passages and slowing the pace down significantly—almost to the extent of pausing between each word—during especially emotional ones.”


  • “A multifaceted picture of an Israeli patriot, military leader, and family man.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • AudioFile Earphones Award
