history made easy (and very interesting)

I have read a fair bit of English history, but found Robert Lacey's unique approach compelling reading. Each anecdote or short biography is like the piece of a puzzle, with enough context to satisfy as a stand-alone piece, but enough interest to prompt further reading for those who want more. There are new slants or tidbits to make each story seem fresh, so the book should appeal to anyone new to English history as well as more seasoned readers. Great reading!
