I picked this up to refresh my memory of historical fact before I started watching HBO's The Tudors. Overall I would say it was a pretty good history. My two biggest problems would be that a) it's written thematically instead of chronologically (which to me makes more sense if you are trying to cover more than 25 years in one sitting), and b) as in so many nonfiction books I've read lately, there is very little citation. Other than that I would say it was interesting, thoughtfully written, and insightful.
