كتاب قيّم يأخذك في رحلة ممتعة من بداية الحركة الاصلاحية وتقلباتها مع الدول السعودية الثلاث .. تخرج بنتيجة في نهاية الكتاب ان المؤلف يريد القول ان " الوهابية "لا تشكل تهديد للغرب فخصومها هم المسلمين وأن التهديد يأتي من الاخوان المسلمين .. كتاب يستحق الإقتناء بجدارة

Very informative AND well researched. It is as objective as a book like this can be.

كتاب شيق و دقيق. انصح به لأي شخص لا يحمل المعلومات الكافية عن الوهابية و تاريخ السعودية المعاصر. يحمل الكثير من التفاصيل، نقدي له لاحظت ان الكاتب يتعاطف مع الوهابية نوعا ما.
