Very easy to learn, it takes me 40 minutes to drive to work and each lesson is 30 minutes long.. ideal for listening to a lesson each day in the car. To my surprise I seem to be picking it up very well. What's ironic is that my Wife is Romanian and hasn't had alot of joy trying to teach me. However, she tells me that Pimsleur are teaching me the very polite way to say things, and that hardly nobody in Romania speaks that way, so my one critisism would be that they should be teaching the common way of asking/offering things. That said, I'm pretty much chuffed with the course.

I love reading History, usually anything before the dreaded 1066. But I thought I would widen my horizons... I'm glad I did. A quite in depth book, that taught me alot. Like how the Hospitallers stopped the Muslim threat from invading Europe, and how Kings and the evil Pope, ridded the World of the Templars, just to get their hands on the Templars fortune. It seems human nature doesn't change much, in modern times we just shaft each other in more civilised ways. A great read.

Loved this book. Can't recommend it highly enough. A very perseptive Man. Stepped out of the limelight after holding the Empire together, but could see it was doomed. Anyone interested in history (not novels) should read this book.

Great book, very interesting. Spend a bit long on Hereward and his so-called descendents? But on the whole I enjoyed it. And it really shows that it didn't all end with Hastings in 1066, and if things had gone a little differently then Anglo-Saxon England might have been won back.

I enjoyed this book, though I thought it was a bit padded out to make the book a decent length... but it was interesting and really apart from this book, it's not easy to find information on Forkbeard.

I enjoyed reading this book, found it interesting, though how much store can be put in anything that was written about Jesus's life is open to question and debate. I recommend that anyone interested in history or religion should read this.
