really liked it

Solid account of Ivan's life, especially his reign of terror over his own people in Novgorod. Some of the sources were English merchants, doctors and ambassadors, and fascinating to read how little Ivan understand the rest of Europe. Surprisingly this book does not spend a whole lot of time about what he is most known for - murdering his own son.
