"Weir has used colourful, fresh material...to recreate early sixteenth-century European life and thought, within which she sets the larger-than-life figure of the King....Alison Weir's HENRY VIII is a compelling, readable account of the life and times of the king....The book is also a meticulous, accurate compilation of source materials, which will serve as essential reading for students of the Tudor period for a long time to come...Good history books ought to change the way we look at ourselves and our nation's past. Her HENRY VIII is one such book." - Lisa Jardine June 2001
