Praise for Simon Sebag Montefiore

"It's a wonderful book...[Montefiore] really tries to tell you what the life of the city has been like...why it means so much to everyone and why it’s so spectacular. You fall in love with the city and it breaks your heart that people can’t make peace over it, because it’s a treasure."
President Bill Clinton
"Simon Sebag Montefiore’s magnificent biography of Jerusalem has all the grandeur and sweep of her 3,000-year history. His masterful research and his gift for bringing it all to life make this fascinating work a treasure-trove for scholars and laymen alike."
Henry Kissinger
