Smashwords book reviews by Harry Maxwell Publications

  • Sudoku Explained on Nov. 15, 2011
    (no rating)
    I found the book easy to read and understand, which is quite a feat given the complex nature of Sudoku. I would recommend it to other readers seeking to solve sudokus. Well done Giulio.
  • Long War for Freedom on Feb. 27, 2013

    Excellent read and useful background to understand the current political and social trends in the Arab world. As I read about the missed opportunities in the past I could not help but compare the unfolding drama of the Arab spring.
  • The Truth about Syria on May 06, 2014

    An excellent book for readers trying to understand the historical background to the civil war in Syria. The author writes in a clear, concise way that makes reading a pleasure.
