Review:

"A brilliant new way of looking at Shakespeare, and recaptured for me the excitement" -- Nick Hytner, the new Director of the National Theatre

"Lavishly and imaginatively illustrated" and "It offers encouragement as well as information." -- The Sunday Telegraph, 16th May 2004

"Lively, useful, diverse, entertaining. It mainlines to the essential Shakespeare...is friendly, imaginative, funny, serious, modern. A wonderful achievement." -- Fiona Shaw, stage and screen actress who presented the case for Shakespeare in the BBC's

"Refreshing and joyful" -- Kenneth Branagh, Shakespearean actor and director, on stage and screen.
