For a free title this is very good indeed. For a history book it is also not too heavy going and is written in clear English that most people will be comfortable with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful as a reference work, 24 Aug 2013

This review is from: The History of London (Kindle Edition)
It has been useful to me as a reference medium and told me about places that I already knew in greater depth. My one disappointment was the absence of street and area maps, showing their changes over the years.
