This is not a good book to read if you know almost nothing about Lawrence of Arabia. I've heard his name and have a very general idea of who he is, but I'd never seen the movie or read any other books on him. This book assumes you have a pretty good idea of Lawrence, and of his work in the Middle East, as well as a working knowledge of his book Seven Pillars of Wisdom. I feel as though I have no better knowledge of Lawrence as I did before I read this book.
