Critic Reviews

"The strength of Detwiler's accomplishment lies in his ability to explain concisely what was at the root of complex matters such as the lay investiture controversy-and to choose the right things to explain." (Library Journal)
"He capsulizes main German trends and thoughts in an exciting manner so that the reader is easily motivated to learn more about German history." (German Quarterly)

Garbage

Is it a good book? There is no way to tell. The reader is simply not competent for this job. He sounds out all words of 3+ syllables like a 7 yr old. He never gets the hang of the word Italy even after reading it 20 times. I have great patience but just found its limit

Reader Dreadful

Reader awful. It's like he recorded all the individual words which were then edited together.
