Críticas:

Wonderfully readable and meticulously researchedas gripping as any thriller, beautifully written and illustrated with an astonishing conclusion ( The Good Book Guide)

This meticulously researched book reveals the truth about a Wonder of the Ancient World, an astonishing creation involving sophisticated hydraulics to create a garden so marvellous that it challenged God. ( Times Higher Education.)

A gripping detective story, wonderfully written and illustrated, with an astonishing conclusion. Unmissable. ( The Tablet)

An enjoyable read throughout. ( BBC History magazine)

[L]earned and never less than gripping ... when the inadequacies of a received tradition are as glaring as they clearly are in the case of the Hanging Garden, it is a cause for celebration that there are scholars of the calibre of Stephanie Dalley to propose a convincing alternative. ( Tom Holland, Literary Review)

This fascinating book reads more like a detective story than a scholarly account of an ancient civilization ... Ms Dalley makes a brilliant and convincing argument. ( Land & Business)

[B]old, clear and immensely interesting... Every good summer needs a controversy and Dalley's high-class book and sheer likeability have now given us an excellent one. ( Robin Lane Fox, Financial Times)

[Dalley] makes a compelling case. Scholars will doubtless find matter for debate, but her central argument rings true. ( Nick Rennison, The Sunday Times {Culture})

Deeply researched and rigorously argued - and certain to raise both hopes and objections. ( Kirkus Reviews)

This scholarly work is full of absorbing details. ( Penelope Hobhouse, The Garden)

Dalley's obvious passion for the book shines through in the book, as does a wealth of knowledge and her commitment to provide the evidence to prove her case The writing is fluid and interesting, suiting specialist and non-specialist alike ... I whole-heartedly recommend this book. ( Stephen Harmer, Garden Design Journal)

[A] brilliant piece of detective work Well-written and thought-provoking, and certainly for the general reader. ( Richard Mawrey, Historic Gardens Review)

The location of this leafy Seventh Wonder has long been disputed; Dr Dalley presents meticulous, fascinating evidence for its siting in Assyria. History books will be rewritten. ( Oxford Today)

Even the greatest skeptic will learn a lot about ancient Assyria and Babylonia, and much more ... Highly recommended. ( M. Van De Mireoop, CHOICE)
