    1. While it was an easy to follow read, I was dissapointed with many aspects of this book. Primarily, it does not do what the abstract sets out: to present the facts and allow the reader to weigh up the arguments themselves. As such you would expect it to be objective with lots of references and direct quotes. This book is heavily biased towards the Ricardian point of view. Arguments are consistently made in favour of Richard III with the Tudor's repeatedly attacked. Direct quotes from the sources [...]

    2. I thoroughly enjoyed the clarity and readability which I found both massively informative and inspiring. This book is an excellent introduction into a far larger subject.

    3. Good summaryAlthough this book cannot answer the questions abut Richard III actions, it does offer a good overview and place to begin learning about this subject.

    4. Good even handed beginners guide to the beginning of the Tudor's and the end of the Cousin's War. Worth reading.
