Given the Byzantium Empire is something of a blind spot in historical knowledge for many, this brief and easy-to-read history proved to be a good quick introduction. I regret not reading it before my first trip to Istanbul where the place is literally, in parts, littered with fragments of its Byzantium Age.

Unfortunately I cannot comment on its merits in terms of research and accuracy given the "blind spot" mentioned earlier but it seemed thorough.

Well written and enjoyable and not as dull as John Julius Norwich's version. A good starting place to start reading about this fascinating empire.
