Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth (Matthew 5.5)

This is a book about religion, except most people will think that it is not. It is a book about aeroplanes, but, then again, only slightly. It is a book about one old man's dream to build the world's tallest skyscraper. Yes, that is true: at least, as far as the first part of the book is concerned. It's a thriller, although not all of it is particularly thrilling, and a mystery, although some of it is pretty obvious. It's about New York and North Korea and Namibia, and some other places beginning with 'N'. Primarily, it's a book about stuff: the stuff of life; the stuff of death; the stuff of everything in between.
