    Shimon Peres was in his early 20s when he first met David Ben-Gurion. Although the state that Ben-Gurion would lead through war and peace had not yet declared its precarious independence, the "Old Man", as he was called even then, was already a mythic figure. Peres, who came of age in the cabinets of Ben-Gurion, is uniquely placed to evoke this figure of stirring contradictions - a prophetic visionary and a canny pragmatist who early grasped the necessity of compromise for national survival.

    "The perfect biography in content and format"

    Story

    Thisis a great book of a great man the founder of Israel The fact that the author was with Ben-Gurion as a friend and colleague for many decades gives a continuity rarely seen in biographies.This is not seconhand accounts.
    The format that David Landau questions the author often aggressively gives a sense of being there myself and asks the questions I would have liked to ask.
    The questions regarding the lack of action,albeit even vocal, regarding the annihilation of the Jews in Europe by Ben Gurion, the de facto leader,had to be and was asked David Landau.The hesitant and weak reply by the author is a unique moment in this book,so much more because you can pick up the vibes of truth,,political expedience ,a touch of embarrasement and sadness..This only an audible book can do well read..
    A true biography of a great man by a great author as well as politician,The "questioner concept" should be included in more audible books
