Aside from the obvious subject of Pope John Paul II, this book gives a rarely heard account of how the Vatican and JP II helped bring about the downfall of Communism In this time of rhetoric about hope it is worth reading the true story of how two men s belief in truth and the inherent flaws of Communism and their pointed attacks on those flaws brought about the bloodless fall of one of the worlds most horrific empires.Unfortunately the media never gave the teamwork of Ronald Reagan and Pope Joh [...]


    2. I first read a condensed version of this book in the Book Section of the October 1996 issue of the Reader s Digest Pope John Paul II s noble role in helping in the collapse of communism in Europe is inspiring and heroic and deserves to be emulated by all freedom loving persons in the world.

    5. A very compelling read that gives a good history of of John Paul II Its not an all encompassing history and does leave out large portions of his life However, the areas it does cover, especially his role in the Cold War make this a very worthy book to read Full of great information interesting to read.


    6. Great insight into the person that John Paul II was, his tremendous intellect, talents as an actor, and above all a scholar, diplomat, and leader totally dedicated to his role as the Pope even though he would have preferred to remain in the background of the church rather than lead it.


    7. Loved loved this book, written about world history from the involvement of the Holy Father Pope John Paul Fascinating read I could not put this historical non fiction down.


    8. decent bio, than a tad to the left, of JPII starts well, deteriorates skip the last chapter, comically bad.



    9. An audio recording on cassette tape I ve been listening to in snatches when I have the free time and a tape player handy.


    10. Le do hace m s de quince a os me pareci una muy buena biograf a de Su Santidad Juan Pablo II bien vale la pena su lectura
