Red Nile: A Biography of the World's Greatest River

I always look forward to the release of a new book by Robert Twigger (http://www.roberttwigger.com/), whether he is exploring Egypt's western desert, learning Aikido with the Tokyo riot police, or sailing across Canada in a birchbark Canoe, his descriptions of his adventures are always riveting. His latest book, Red Nile: A Biography of the World's Greatest River, released on 23rd May, is no exception, not only because he discusses a particularly fascinating topic, but (rather excitingly for me) because he spends a chapter talking about my research into the reality of the Pharaoh's role as war leader, and my investigation into how King Seqenenre Tao met his violent end. It's wonderful to know that this research will now reach a large audience!
