"Gabe has undertaken an arduous and grim task to convincingly show that the 9-11 attacks, the 2008 global financial crisis (GFC) and the rise of the Islamic State are all intimately linked. His writing is clear and passionate, sprinkled with an occasional clever turn of phrase, but doesn’t cite sources for his “facts” and leaves readers guessing."
"The instructional material in this book is often baffling, and a professional teacher is indeed likely to be a needed supplement. Ultimately, readers will struggle to make sense of this offering, which, while clearly well intended, falls short of its goal of being a useful tool for aspiring musicians."

"The book is short on specific how-to instructions and long on generalities and platitudes..Readers who click with Colquitt’s chatty style will appreciate his anecdotes about changing one’s mindset to tackle more challenging classes or outside projects. however, The Scholar’s Key lacks the depth and focus it needs to be fully useful."
