Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent insight of one of the greatest generals in American history  Sep 13, 2007
Not only does this book provide the maxims written by Stonewall but it also provides insight into those maxims. Fantastic book and I highly recommend it to anybody who wants to better understand the man they called "Stonewall".
Regardless of who actually originated the maxims that Stonewall collected, what is amazing to me is how steadfastly he followed every single one of these sayings incorporating them into his own character. Each of these sayings was a command, which he seemed to take to his soldier's heart, as if it had come from G-d Himself. I'm sure he wasn't thinking of publication when he collected these, nor was he submitting it for an academic grade, lying that every single phrase had originated from his gray (intensely) matter. He was an amazing gentleman, and please don't ever get rid of West Point. Some fine people come out of that institution.
Great Short Read  Jan 3, 2007
I loved reading this book! Anecdotes were used from a multiple of sources to describe the marvelous character of General Jackson. The material presented here can readily be applied to your own life today. It is the kind of book you can read and walk away refreshed in not only learning what it takes to be a great man and American hero, but a true man of God. It will be a stretch for most readers just to reach up and touch General Stonewall Jackson's shoelaces.
the source of Stonewall's maxims  Nov 14, 2006
James I. Robertson, Jr. is an indefatigable researcher, and no one knows more about Jackson than he does. But this book is not his best work.

Unbeknownst to Robertson, Stonewall's maxims come almost exclusively from William Alcott's _Young Man's Guide_ and Franklin's Autobiography. Ironically, Alcott was the uncle of Louisa May Alcott and the brother of transcendentalist Bronson Alcott.

Please forgive my self-promotion, as this article focuses on the maxim book: see Wallace Hettle, "The Minister, the Martyr, and the Maxim: Robert Lewis Dabney and Stonewall Jackson Biography," Civil War History, Dec. 2003.
An inspiring look at a man 100% determined to overcome his limitations  Jun 11, 2006
Jackson is a fascinating man who had some really serious problems and issues but who was determined to apply his faith in God and his absolute best efforts towards being the very best man he could be. The commentary in this book draws that point out very well.

The maxims are Jackson's self help book or memory aide to his efforts to overcoming his painful social awkwardness. In other words these are the things that Jackson felt he needed to work on badly enough to write down for future reference. As a piece of self revelation it is pretty profound.

The quotes in the book from Jackson's wife and associates show just how far he got in his quest to improve. He never totally overcame a lot of his problems (after all, who does?), but the effort he put into the attempt is breathtaking and, as I found, very inspiring. This is a short book and well worth reading and re-reading.
