    would not recommend

    I would not recommend this book....it was very detailed about the sexual escapades Elizabeth had, however really never gave an insight into the type of person she was... I don't think it every mentioned the many wonderful things she did for charities or how she brought up her children etc...it pictured her as a greedy sex crazed selfish person. something I think that was not true...rjames0638
