Read from December 30, 2010 to January 07, 2011

The information and analysis in this book are fascinating but the way the author organized it leaves much to be desired. The first chapter is a chronological history and then the remaining chapters each focus on seemingly arbitrary hand-picked facets of Eleanor's life. This bizarre organization (though perhaps suited to SOME histories) is onerous in this case and negatively affected my reading experience.
