I found this book to be very well done. It gives a very balanced view of Richard III without the bias that the Tudor writers (especially Shakespeare) have used. Provoked my interest to read more about the Princes in the Tower and English history in general. Highly recommended!

This book was extremely detailed! It went into depth about his adolescence years and the places he lived. It was a true account of his life and not shadowed by Tudor propaganda. A must read for anyone interested in Richard III

This book is a must-read on Richard III and his times. Wonderfully written, a definitive biography.
