This book is a gem. I read it almost by chance, and was soon as engrossed as my ten-year-old son by the lives of the people who have made Britain what she is today. It will be very useful to every young student of history, and will inform and entertain adults as well. * amazon.co.uk, Sept 2000 *
The guide is interesting and informative, and written in an entertaining and amusing manner.
