    A different look at British History!

    I bought this book just to see how amusing it's interpretation of British History would be to a Briton.
    I find it very interesting and amusing. Too bad our history books in school were not written this way!!!!!

    Great for getting your feet wet in British History

    I was looking for a general overview of British history that would fill in some of the gaps in my existing knowledge---I wasn't expecting it to be so much fun! This book is highly engaging, humorous, and informative. The author clears up some of British history's most confusing topics (Wars of the Roses, for instance) with great one-liners and englightening explanations that are easy to remember. I highly recommend this book for those who knows nothing about British history and those who know just about everything; you can't finish this book without gaining something.

    I Also Recommend:

    British History in a Nutshell

    Ties centuries and millennia together in an interesting, concise manner.
    Helps with the facts that got lost or muddled. Tosses in interesting, but relevant issues and trivia.

    A lighthearted and entertaining survey of English history

    For light entertainment and interesting, somewhat "different" bits of information about English history, this is an excellent choice!
