This was a gentle introduction that taught me a lot, but what it really lacked was flavour. There was not a single historical character portrait that I remember. It was completely fact-led and objective, which I suppose is great for clear thinking, but a bit difficult to integrate without any good narrative thread. As a book for beginners, I think that this is where it fails to deliver what would seem promised.
