I'm not even finished with this book and I love it! The chapters are a perfect amount of pages, and the words and letters are a good size to be readable. Normally in a biography it'd tell you the main events with little detail. This one however puts you in Arnold's shoes with great detail. Worth buying. Note: This is NOT the eBook review. This is the paperback edition. Thank you for reading this review and consider my opinion before buying.
