Review:

Thought provoking ... selective but objective, it interprets without being unduly opinionated. * Daily Mail * Extraordinary and compelling history ... Amazing stuff: insightful, accessible and hugely addictive ... It makes you begin to understand your place in the chronological scheme of things. * Time Out * A staggering achievement that is not only readable and interesting but user-friendly. * The Observer * A tour de force * Daily Express * Has there ever been a more user-friendly means to the history of Britain? * Spectator *
