Review by Dan Daniel (California) from
«David Yousif is extraordinarily savvy about Saddam complex personality; and his writer’s radar picks up more than most. In his first book, «Killer since Birth», he performed with pitch-perfect style. David takes on a hefty subject, but does it with a light touch. He gives a fascinating account of a ruler turning from a poor uneducated upbringing to be a committed tyrant with ambitions to lead the Arab nation. This book is never dry or dull; the writer keeps the action and emotion going strong. Each chapter leaves you wanting to read the next. I frequently found myself wondering «What's going to happen?» even though I already knew. David achieves this effect both through his attention to action and his ability to present the story of Saddam on very personal levels. He includes anecdotes telling the stories of many individuals, some of which read like Hollywood movie plots. The result is a page-turner that leaves you with humble gratitude for the men and women of the day. He helps us see again that Saddam is not only a person worth reading about, but worth remembering his brunt on the Assyrian people.»
