Somewhat lacking review of the period,

This review is from: England and Its Rulers: 1066-1272 (Blackwell Classic Histories of England) (Paperback)
This book is very readable, but has some rather large omissions for a piece of work covering 1066-1272.
While William the Conqueror is, as usual with books on this period, covered in good depth, William Rufus, Henry I and Stephen/Matilda are all covered with such brevity that it is hardly worth mentioning them at all.
Should the above monarchs, be ones you hope to learn anything about, I would advise you to look elsewhere.
On a positive note, the book is very readable and does contain some strong points, just be aware before you buy, of its limitations.
