The Tudors 101, 7 Oct. 2011
This is a great read and I should know as I have a shelf full of Tudor books so particularly good to finally have one for my Kindle! It doesn't assume any knowledge of the Tudors and you are led through the successive reigns of Henry VII, Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary Tudor and Elizabeth I in 5 easy to read chapters. The author is obviously used to explaining the sometimes complex aspects of the monarchs' lives to people new to the subject. The illustrations are wonderful too, over 100 or so with full captions. I'd love the author to write a whole book on Henry's six wives as this side of the book is particularly interesting.
