I didn't expect much when I purchased this book and I wasn't disappointed. The author had a difficult time not only with history but with being able to fill this small book. I was surprised at the lack of editing. On page 130 of an Irish History timeline, the author has the important battle at Kinsale in 1593. I wonder why the town and Irish academia have just completed in December 2001 symposiums on the 400th anniversary of the battle.On page 138, a date on the timeline is inverted. I felt like the author needed to publish something and that the book was the hasty result. The book was disjointed, unorganized and everything seemed like an attempt to fill the book including several blank pages in the middle of the book.Was this review helpful?
