It's a very good pickup for free for the Kindle. I suspect the version has been updated since some of the other reviews, as the formatting is fine.
My reasons for not giving the book 4 stars are its somewhat convoluted style at times, which is sometimes demanding to follow but characteristic of other histories written at the turn of the 20th century, and identifying people with a frequent interchangeable use of their names, multiple and changing titles, and regions ruled. Those of us who were not raised on the complex family tree of UK and European Who's Who may find this difficult at times with such a large cast of characters. Those familiar with European and UK history will find this a smaller obstacle.
All in all this is a very informative, scholarly review of a politically, socially, and religiously tumultuous and critically formative time in the UK and Europe. It also provides a good foundation to better understand why Great Britain behaved the way it did vis-à-vis the 13 colonies.
Pure unadorned text. No concessions to short attention spans here.
I read it on my Ipad however and was able to switch to Wikipedia for analysis, pictures and maps as the mood took me. Wonderful stuff.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and can heartily recommend it.
You don't have to take my word for it either. Google the author's name and read a review written when it was first published, 1938.
History makes history.
Also it's free!
One aside: The formatiing makes it somewhat difficult to read, but not extraodinarily so.
