I would definitely recommend to anyone who, like me, enjoys a well-written historical medical analysis.
In all I find the theory of Henry VIII being Kell positive and having McLeod plausible, though I very much disapprove of the way Ms Kramer constantly assumes he suffers from it throughout the book (phrases like: because of McLeod Henry does this or that and McLeod caused Henry to believe...etc) After all; we cannot be sure. It is a possibility...
Unfortunately, the author's unfathomable decision not to explain the two main medical conditions she expounds as responsible for Henry's behaviour, made the book a tedious exercise in conjecture.
I've given it two stars because there are some interesting snippets regarding the attitudes and beliefs held in the sixteenth century, but as far as Ms Kramer's diagnosis of the sovereign's physical & mental problems, I really was unimpressed.
" findings ". This is total, and very badly written, codswallop. I don't think the author would know the meaning of that word, and would have to purchase a real dictionary to look it up. Most irritating are the author's references as to how Henry Vlll is " remembered ". He isn't remembered, he has been dead for 500 years, give or take. Perhaps the author, in his deluded state, remembers him, the rest of us are merely aware. I am not sorry that I purchased this book. It's a lesson well learned to take more care when buying an eBook.
