Review

Praise for Thomas Cromwell

"An intelligent, sympathetic, and well researched biography."--Wall Street Journal

"Borman unravels the story of Cromwell's rise to power skillfully . . . If you want the inside story of Thomas Cromwell . . . this is the book for you."--Weekly Standard

"Dr. Tracy Borman has crafted an exceptional and compelling biography about one of the Tudor age's most complex and controversial figures. With expert insights based on a wealth of research, and riveting detail, she has brought Thomas Cromwell to life as never before, and achieved a fair and balanced assessment of his character and his career. Above all, her book is a joy to read--a remarkable tour de force by one of our most accomplished historians."--Alison Weir

"Excellent. . . . This deeply researched and grippingly written biography brings Cromwell to life, probing into his complex personality and exposes the Henrician court in all its brutal, glittering splendor."--Independent (UK)

"Tracy Borman recounts persuasively and engagingly the tale of the meteoric rise of this complex commoner to the highest offices and dominant influence at the court of Henry and his just as meteoric fall from grace and execution."--America

"Should be catnip to fans of Hilary Mantel's best-selling Wolf Hall novels about Cromwell."--USA Today

"British historian Tracy Borman has unearthed previously unpublished evidence that casts a brighter light on one of the most ruthless of machiavellians in British history."--Guardian (UK)

"An engrossing biography. . . . A fine rags-to-riches-to-executioner's-block story of a major figure of the English Reformation."--Kirkus Reviews

"An insightful biography of a much-maligned historical figure."--Booklist

"Borman combines a mastery of historical detail with a fast-pace and an accessible style. She doesn't forget that she's dealing with human beings, with their fallibilities and petty motivations . . . As a psychological subject, Cromwell is as fascinating as the man he served. No wonder we all want to know more."--Independent (UK)

"Tracy Borman tells us succinctly in 400 pages what we need to know about the man who rose to be the king's highest adviser. . . . [A] good book."--Times (UK)

"[An] elegant historical biography. . . . [Borman's] prose, as ever, glides beautifully along."--Sunday Times (UK)

"A highly readable account."--Financial Times (UK)
