Like many others, I was inspired to read this book after viewing the History Channel's recent miniseries. Waller's book is impeccably researched, and she views the feud in a fundamentally different way than so many of the sensationalist stories did.

(view spoiler)

An absolutely fascinating read. It took me a while to get through the book in its entirety, as I had to read it slowly to understand some of the concepts that Waller was introducing, but it was well worth it. Definitely worth the time to read.
