Review:

Has there ever been a more user-friendly means to the history of Britain? Spectator A tour de force Daily Express A staggering achievement that is not only readable and interesting but user-friendly. The Observer Extraordinary and compelling history ... Amazing stuff: insightful, accessible and hugely addictive ... It makes you begin to understand your place in the chronological scheme of things. Time Out Thought provoking ... selective but objective, it interprets without being unduly opinionated. Daily Mail
