A meticulously researched and well-written portrait of Thomas More. Ackroyd has a gift for making his subject come alive, and teasing out the nuances of the primary source material in a subtle and insightful way. There's nothing in here that's really new or startling—unsurprising, perhaps, given how well-studied More has been in the centuries since his death—but Ackroyd presents it in such a way as to give one of the most lucid and complete biographies of the man that we possess.
