This review is from: Why Shakespeare WAS Shakespeare (Kindle Singles) (Kindle Edition)
No-one is better qualified than Professor Wells to write this rebuttal to the 150-year-old theory that someone else wrote Shakespeare's plays.
He systematically, clearly and expertly breaks down the sometimes really crazy arguments that have evolved. Most of these have no basis of evidence, or indeed accurate research... or ignore what is an uncomfortable doubt in their fallacious arguments.
It is a really good, straightforward read. I do hope he has sent copies to some of the proponents to counter their ignorance.

Mark Twain says:
How can someone be qualified to discuss the Authorship debate when they clearly have not kept up with recent scholarship? Wells simply reprints old arguments and avoids the most damaging evidence against Shaksper of Stratford. For an excellent rebuttal to Mr. Wells, see Shakespeare Beyond Doubt? orShakespeare By Another Name
