This book is a must have for the Tudor aficionado. The photos are wonderful and it gives a very thorough backround on both sides of his family including siblings and children that is not usually done to the degree that this book has accomplished. It of course discusses all of his accomplishments, weaknesses and historical changes that he is responsible for. The book is a delightful and interesting read thanks to the writing of Starkey and it highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book as a trip to England to attend the actual British Library exhibition celebrating the 500th anniversary of Henry's accession to the throne was out of the question this year. I was not disappointed. The book contains copious illustrations of the items that made up the exhibition - which, as it was mounted by the British Library, focuses largely on literary items that were associated with Henry VIII and his circle. Well-written captions explain the significance of each item, and introductions to the different sections are written by experts on various aspects of Tudor history. All in all this is one purchase that was well worth the money.

I could not go to England during the exhibition, but I was very pleased with this book. I was amazed at all the important documents that still exist from the times of Henry VIII. It just makes me appreciate the other nonfiction Henry VIII books that I read. I also appreciate the fact that the book references where the pictured documents are normally housed. How about an Elizabeth I book like this?

This is a beautiful book for a great price. I would have given it five stars if it had contained a little more history and fewer pictures of old documents that you can't read.

This is a great collection for any Tudor Dynasty fan, or lover of all things Henry the VIII. It has a lot of the images that have been seen in other books, such as the paintings of him, but it offers more insight into his youth. It is really like an encyclopedia with maps, letters, statues, portraits, etc... Great for reference.
