The most gripping non-fiction book I have read in a very long time
A Fascinating book
An engaging piece of research, history and recollection
[A] thoughtful and ultimately uplifting analysis of the unsung heroes of our age
Mayhew's book is rich in explanation and background detail...Although this is a scary book, it is also one full of hope
The beauty of The Four Horsemen is how she takes her quaking readers to the edge of the abyss, encouraging them to peek into the darkness below, then gently pulls them back, explaining how the worst can be averted, by dint of carefully accumulated wisdom, generosity of spirit, hard work and sheer ingenuity . . . I was left moved and uplifted . . . [I]n this first-class example of popular science Mayhew demonstrates that's also where salvation lies.
