i have read the book several times in one go and also use it for dipping in and out of to explain history biographies i am reading.
i use this book as a guide to my reading list. i have started at the beginning and have bought a biography of every monarch and their spouse and other major characters. i use the book as a catalogue of my collection.
this book has been so useful on days out when someone says "so what did this king do then?" that i have bought it on kindle too.
every school kid should be given a copy of this book on their first day at high school, it would make history lessons so much easier.
i cannot recommend this book highly enough, please buy it today
One thing that is worth mentioning, is that when the author, Alison Weir, was researching this and is some cases found more than one possible date for any event, or name or even identity for any particular individual, she chose to be completist and to include all the possibilities in this work, with an indication of what was likely or unlikely to be correct, as the case may be, so for those conducting a very academical or genealogical study of the subject of royal genealogy or history this should be treated as a very good starting point rather than sole reference, but this work nonetheless meets the needs of most people who would want to buy and refer to it.
