Explains much of the islands history. Easy to understand, through. Have both the Kindle and paper versions. Kept me interested through long airport waits, while hubs was reading the book version at home. Good read for those who have IOM ties in their family history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read for genealogy enthusiasts! 20 Jan. 2014

This was a fascinating read and a great way to learn more about the origin of my Manx family surnames. The search feature on the kindle version did not appear to work, but it didn't take too long to scan through the surnames until I found what I was looking for!
