Excellent narration meets excellent history for a broad audience--while displaying real academic rigor. By approaching the year day by day and in paying attention to exactly where the money went, Mortimer shows how Henry spent his time and his money. How could you do better to see what a person values? Mortimer also frankly addresses the limitations of his approach, while defending what he believes (and I agree) it adds to a discussion of Henry. Thus, Mortimer comes across as informed, intelligent, and intellectually honest. The best history book I've read in several years.
