This review is from: It Runs in the Family: Understanding More About Your Ancestors (Kindle Edition)
Having read this book some time ago, I was shocked to read the very harsh review by Jude and would wish to say in mitigation that the book, as I understand it, is not meant to be a comprehensive treatise on any of the many topics it touches upon. More particularly, the book is certainly not about photography or its history. As is made abundantly clear on page 9, 'There are a number of things that this book doesn't do. ... It does not offer a comprehensive history of photography." It suggests to me that Jude has missed the point of the book in focusing on aspects relating to his / her specialism. Readers may care to reflect on the generally laudatory reviews this and other works by the author receive.
