Fifty Shades of Royal Sex Scandals: Love, lust and&hellip by T.S Wiseman

That this was clearly the wrong book for me became soon apparent. I only checked it out because it was a freebie and had many positive reviews. Just shows how wrong you can be.It was poorly written and inaccurate and I don't think a proof reader had been engaged. The cover does not lie however and there may be incidental interest here for some readers who are entirely new to these snippets of history..
The Last Days of Richard III and the fate of his D&hellip by John Ashdown-Hill

Concise and clear and it contained, to me, new information (Marriage Alliances with Portugal or Spain) and he makes such an important point that history should not be analysed by hindsight. What were this man's intentions and those of his contemporaries at the time?
A stimulating read, much enjoyed, much food for thought; if this is an area of history that interests you then you will enjoy it very much I think.
I bought this as Kindle which did not allow me to enjoy the illustrations as much as I might have if I'd bought be book but even then the resemblance between the wife of William Wilberforce and the reconstructed face of Richard III is almost spooky.

Lovely. I bought this for Christmas knowing there would be a few folk of various ages sitting in front of the fire post prandial.
This was wonderful because the 10 minute segments allowed conversation or interest to develop. This is not an inexpensive item but will be fun for years to come. The resolution is excellent and clear. If you don't fancy this Culture one then I am sure you might find as much pleasure in another one. 4 discs too....
