Customer Review

on 29 March 2006
This series of Dummies (and the alternative Idiot's) guides keeps to a similar, readable and entertaining format, that works for any of the different topics covered. If you like the style for one, then I'm sure you can pick any topic you're interested in and find the book enjoyable.
This one covered British History from the Stone Age to now. Inevitably, it covered a great deal of information about which King or Queen did what and the affect they had on history. This was the stuff I always found tedious at school, but enjoyed it here. What I did find of most use is where alternative views are expressed to the common, accepted norm and where certain events are tied in with its modern implications.
This is a book I'll keep for my children for when they get to Secondary school, and get bored with their History teacher.
