Disappointing. I found it a bit boring as most of the first two thirds of the book was virtually a long list of popes, their 'problems' and what they had done. The latter part of the book (Napoleon, Garibaldi etc) felt as though it had been abbreviated in order to keep the book at a reasonable size. Sorry, even two stars is being kind.
