More of the same
The preview blurb asserts that this book examines new sources. That is difficult to determine, because, other than the author's speculations, the story is the same as I have read in better sources. Try "Nicholas and Alexandra" by Robert Massie, for one fine example. Some of the author's speculations are interesting and based on plentiful evidence, such as her examination of Alexandra's health and what might have been her actual illness. However, Rounding's attempt at testing Myer's-Briggs as a proxy for Nicholas is far too fanciful to be taken seriously. Speculating on his personality type is one thing, but taking the test and guessing at his answers is totally different. If you prefer fact to guessing, try a book written by a professional historian.
