This is the type of book you pick up and read at leisure in-between more serious works. It relates the fates of the children of famous people across all time periods....from Cleopatra to Errol Flynn to John Adams to Einstein, etc. For the most part these progeny had problems living up to the fame of their parents and eventually turned out rather badly. Additionally, most of the famous parents were seriously lacking in parenting skills. A lot of interesting facts here and this is a fun read. ...more

Interesting to hear what happened to the children of royalty and hollywood royalty. Did you know Paul Revere had more than a dozen kids? And Who knew there was a King Zog of Albania? Don't you wonder what happened to their kids?

Interesting tidbits loosely connected with the parenting style and progeny of famous historical figures.
