    Hey FSIH,

    Do you have this book? I picked it up a couple weeks ago, but I want to finish reading "God's Secretaries" by Nicolson first.

    Here is my review and comments on this book.
    Here is Brother Tyndale's review of the book. I didn't see the thread so we have two by the same name and on the same topic.

    read a library copy fr the best library sys in the world :)

    it wasn't hagiographic, like most KJBO books abt "the making of" r, which i found refreshing.

    :D
