Very good and concise if you're for the monarchy as an individual person. Which I'm not. I read this book purely because my great great grandfather played the piano in front of the Prince and Princess of Wales (Edward VII and Alexandra) at the newly opened wing of the Royal Hospital in 1897. My great great grandfather was an almost famous pianist in the later half of the nineteenth century in London before he died unexpectedly at a young age.

Readable but long. The author liked to jump around time periods which got increasingly confusing. Not bad for a non-fiction book but not fantastic either.
Chase Insteadman Mountbatten
The narrative is sometimes confusing, especially when introducing new people, necessarily numerous in a biography like this, and when suddenly changing from a subject to another.
It lacks a little of the amusing component that I found in all the previous biographies I came across, and I must admit that for two of the last three chapters I applied a very personal system of "fast reading", just not to let those pages unread.
The account of the King's life is very accurate and authentic nonetheless.
