• Wonderful... what sets it apart is the way the tale is told. Quirky digressions and fascinating anecdotes pepper a narrative of wonderful dramatic energy.

    Gerard DeGroot, The Times
  • Excellent and profoundly committed ... Man provides a vivid, lucid and economical picture. A worthy addition to the burgeoning popular literature on the centaurs of the steppes.

    Frank McLynn, Literary Review
  • [Man] does a splendid job of conveying the sheer opulence and grandeur... [and tells] a rollicking good story, his historical narrative interspersed with high-spirited travel-writerly digressions. Lively and engaging.

    Justin Marozzi, The Spectator
  • A very lively and enjoyable book.

    Peter Lewis, Daily Mail
  • One could not wish for a better storyteller or analyst than John Man.

    Simon Sebag Montefiore
