Informative and concise. A lot of the word choices made it seem more like a transcript of a speech than a written work - "there was lots of drift wood" - ok for speaking, not so much for writing. The history section seemed a little too short, but with only about 290 pages to work with it was adequate. Ultimately, a good book if the vikings pique, but don't hold, your interest.
