What an eye-opener about this dynasty. Not really glamorous like in the movies. I would love to see some movie director portray them as they really were.!!

Great overview for the non scholar about the Tudor dynasty. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer. All the Tudors were bloody not just Mary.

Narrative chronology is interspersed with great background chapters that help fix event in the context of the times,

It's an interesting read and the author's premise is well-thought-out and supported with notes and bibliography. His view on Elizabeth seems most at variance with the standard historical model and, while I'm not sure that I necessarily agree with his 'take', he supports his argument.
