This was an easy, undemanding read and I discovered information that I was not previously aware of, most of which was interesting. However , I had to wonder how much was actually true as there were many, many errors in the given facts that I already knew. For example the book states that Edward II WAS HIS FATHER'S 4TH SON AND ONLY BECAME KING BECAUSE HIS 3 ELDER BROTHERS DIED BEFORE THEIR FATHER Edward I. Actually Edward II was Edward I only son by his first wife although he did have 2 much younger half brothers. He also states that the Princes in the Tower were Richard Duke of York and Edward Earl of Warwick. They were actually Richard Duke of York and Edward Prince of Wales (the young Earl of Warwick was their cousin who was not imprisoned until many years after the Princes deaths). It also stated that the Duke of York was the eldest but he was in fact the youngest. These are are easily checked facts so I have to wonder how thorough the author's research was if he got these basic facts wrong. I do not recommend it unless you want to use the book as a starting point for your own research in to the questions supposedly "answered".

Unfortunately there are too many mistakes in this book. Although this book is trying to show the truth behind some historical `facts` there are too many errors in areas that are known to be true and can still be proven
