Interesting book covering the desire of Pope Francis to change the way the Vatican functions and how many in the institution are resisting. Worth a read for anyone interested in the Vatican.

The subject matter of this book was interesting, and I learned a few things, but it felt like the various strands of the book weren't tied together as well as they could have been. That's simply a consequence of this being adapted from lectures, but ...more

I was completely unaware of Beaumarchais prior to reading this book, and that's a shame. The story of his efforts to finance the American revolutionary cause make for a fascinating read. I would quibble only with the sense left in the book that Beaum ...more

This is an era of British history of which I knew very little going in. I read biographies less for the specific details of individual's lives and more to set the stage for the world around them during their life. Wilson did an excellent job both of ...more
