Brilliantly written and narrated. Highly recommend this book. if you know nothing about the english then read this and you will know all about the english
Mr Tombs has done a fine job of compressing the complex story of the English into a one-volume book. The great sweep may be known to many, but he teases out the social factors that make history come alive, and delivers the death blow to many misconceptions along the way. Thoroughly recommended.
This is the first history book I've read since school.
It seemed daunting with the size of it at a nuts 45+ hours and it's taken me months to get through.
Please don't let this stop you though from taking it on.
This book has helped me to have such a vastly more expansive view of history from our own little island perspective.
Not only that but it's made me fall even more deeply in love with my own country of birth!
I am so very proud to be English!
Thank you Robert!

It's incredible that a subject so vast can be so comprehensively explored in one volume. Tombs manages it and does so with balance and insight. This is an exceptional work.
Far more than a chronological collection of facts and anecdotes, Tombs provides analysis which constantly appears somehow refreshing, vital, and incontrovertible. Perhaps this is why the book is recommended by people from across the political spectrum.
