I'm rereading this book to refresh my memory of the real Richard III after reading "The Sunne in Splendour." Kendall's assessment of Richard is balanced and fair, based on careful analysis of the existing sources, with the basis for any speculation always carefully explained in the notes. If your idea of Richard comes from Shakespeare or Sir Thomas More, or if you simply like to read about real people in troubled times faced with moral dilemmas and betrayals, you'll enjoy this book, which is not only superbly researched but also as well-written and absorbing as any novel.
