This book is ludicrously amateurish. When I was at 8% of this book I was so angry I wanted to throw my Kindle out of the window. There are hardly any facts in this book that are correct; it is riddled with mistakes, some small but some are really serious. I have decided to delete this book from my Kindle and warn others about it (much better that damaging my Kindle!). This site won't let me give 'zero stars' (let alone a 'minus 5 stars') to a review, so I have to give this 1 star.

Just a few of the many faults I found in just the first 8% of this book (as I mentioned above: this is when I gave up on this collection of nonsense):

-At location 135 (at 8% of this book) the author claims it is not known when Rembrandt died:

(quote:) "As the place of his residence is veiled in obscurity, so is the place of
his demise, which is supposed to have taken place in 1664, as Mr. Smith,
in a note to his Life of Rembrandt, says--"that no picture is recorded
bearing a later date than 1664, and the balance of his property was paid
over to his son in 1665." Mr. Woodburn, in a Catalogue of his Drawings, says:--"It is uncertain what became of him after his bankruptcy, or where he died; a search has
been made among the burials at Amsterdam, until the year 1674, but his name does not occur; probably Baldinucci is correct in stating that he died at Stockholm, in 1670; [...]"(unquote)

This is absolute nonsense: it is known when and where Rembrandt died: he died in Amsterdam on the 4th of october 1669. He was buried on the 8th of october 1669 in a rented grave in the Westerkerk. His relatives paid the sexton of the church 15 guilders. So this author really does not know what he is talking about. An absolute amateur!
