    Not impressed

    The grammar and spelling errors in this book were atrocious! The book as a whole left much to be desired even for a quick overview of the English monarchy. I would not recommend the purchase of this book.

    very good

    This was very good until it came to the current Queen and Prince Charles . The aurhors did not elaborate on Princes Diane. And did not say go into how Charles cheated on Diane.
