							Landau brilliantly chronicles Sharon’s surprising about-face, combining the  immediacy of firsthand reportage with the analysis and independent insight of a  historian’s perspective. Sharon suffered a stroke in January 2006 and remains  in a persistent vegetative state. This biography recounts the life of the man  who is considered by many to be Israel’s greatest military leader and political  statesman, illustrating how Sharon’s leadership transformed Israel, and how his  views were shaped by the changing nature of Israeli society.

A thorough, extremely candid description and assessment of the military and political lives of the controversial Sharon, who has been in a vegetative state since a massive stroke in 2006. The author...displays a deep familiarity with the details and contexts of Sharon’s career....[and] is also adept in the descriptions of the labyrinthine political world of Israel during Sharon’s era. Splendid reporting, comprehensive research and probing analysis inform this unblinking view of a complicated man and a sanguinary geography. - Kirkus (starred review)
