Shakespeare is one of those writers who you might dread reading but once you do, you're glad you did.

Well, now you can take a quick jaunt through Ziegler's book and find out that (a) Shakespeare's not that hard and (b) it's really worth your time to get a taste of the Bard. (IF you insist on reading the Bard at all--as Ziegler points out, the plays are plays and are meant to be seen. MUCH easier to understand that way.)

Ziegler brings his easygoing style we know and love from ChopBard: The Cure
