Considering the gigantic scope of history covered in this book, it is amazing that it can be made clear and so well organized. It is very easy to find whomever you might be looking for. The index is excellent. And the history is made very interesting, complete with maps and geneology charts. This book is very complete. I find it indispensable for study on the history of Great Britain.

Absolutely cannot do without this book when working on anything dealing with royalty in England. Over two thousand years of material complete with tons of genealogical charts and enough information to whet the appetite for more. I love just picking the book up and turning to pretty much any page and just start to read. I never get bored of chasing family lines and going through the charts. I only wish that the author would of went into more detail on the Irish than he did.

An absolute 'must have' for any person at all interested in the monarchs of Great Britain. VERY informative, easy to understand, and filled with trivial, as well as 'important', items. This volume is extremely easy to use.
