History: - Boring and Hard. NOT THIS BOOK!!
on 6 March 2001
England 1485-1603. A complicated era to study but without doubt this book will help. I study AS level Tudor history and this book has been my Guru, or to use stronger terminology in some cases my savior. It has it all Religion, Law, Politics...everything you need to know to pass the current syllabus. I applaud the authors for their hours of hard work to give us a book that is direct, to the point and explains everything so well. So you don't get to bored while straining over those hard Essay's entitled 'Henry VIII...Full History please' it includes an interesting array of pictures and diagrams which again make it easier to understand. My critism's would be that perhaps this book can be to vague in places and that there is no colour...once you open the front cover it's all so monochrome it hurts your eyes. But on balance a good book, which will no doubt be of help to anyone studying this period. Especially if your focus is on Henry VII, Henry VIII, Cardinal Wolsey and all the factors surrounding them. A truly great book.
