Not as good as his first two Langdon books but much better than his last IMO.  I enjoyed it.
I thought it was excellent!
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

For anyone who is interested in the Sistine Chapel or Michelangelo, i highly recommend The Sistine Secrets. You will be amazed to learn what the true meanings are behind the incredible artwork within the Sistine Chapel.

If anyone likes reading about Middle Eastern/Israeli History I can make a list here.

But you must start with The Prime Ministers
I finally got around to getting this book at the library. I just started it this morning and have a very hard time putting it down .
Thanks for the recommendation!

Just read it (10 hours on Amtrak is a long time :) ). A refreshing break from his last 3 (he doesn't even mention any of Roberts' previous experiences, except for one passing mention of the Vatican).

Read any good books lately?

I'm not a big reader normally, but I'm in the mood to read a book. Can anyone suggest a good book for a 24 year old guy that will really keep me glued to it?

What the Dog Saw - Malcom Gladwell
Loved his book the Outliers, very interesting theory there.

Also love Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series, best series out there IMO. Was very sad to hear he died earlier this year.

If anyone likes reading about Middle Eastern/Israeli History I can make a list here.

But you must start with The Prime Ministers
Read this while learning in Israel, really, really good.
Also started reading a book about the history of the IAF, forgot what it was called but very well written. Didn't get to finish it tho  :(.

$28 is still too pricey for me

Try searching for a used one on half.com (sister company of Ebay)
