There are much better options available

The book is a mess and sorely needs editing. The writing is incredibly dry and often just boils down to a list of kings in prose form. Many, many books have been written on European history, so dig a bit deeper and you'll find some great reads. This is more suitable for a student who takes one European history class in the lifetime and never studies it again.
