    "Like the Sherlock Holmes mysteries, this 100+ year old book stands up very well. If you happen to be into sailing small sailboats, this book is a must as it gives a very detailed account of how two guys sail around in the Northern European seas trying to solve a mystery which seems to imply a possible German invasion of England. And they are doing this under very difficult conditions of weather, extreme tides, and powerful snake like currents with none of the navigation equipment that we take for granted today. How they did it back then is amazing. And, if you're a history buff, the description of the geo political scene in Europe prior to the 1st World War is also extremely interesting. Of course, the fact that the German Kaiser is a close relative of Queen Victoria also complicates things. This book is a real gem, an old gem to be sure, but it still shines"

    "A good book for anyone who wants to learn about the thought process of Ulysses Grant. The general and president writes the book from his own perspective and it is an interesting autobiography. Barnes and Noble has reissued the book from their own press and it is a beautiful copy."

    "I love this book, and finally wore out my old copy after my last read-through. I purchased this item as a replacement, and it looks like the binding has been cheapened. I don't expect this one to last me very long."

    "I go to B&N for my books and try to see what they would recommend. I read this book from B&N and it's really good. It's probably the best one I have ever came across in the store. It's about Gods, Odin All Father, Thor, the god of thunder, and loki, the god of mischief. Lots of interesting things going on. I highly recommend it. "
