If you are interested in Richard the III and his life at all I highly recommend this concise and useful book. Annotated by Kendall, it includes the 'History of Richard the Third' by More, which was considered the 'primary' source for Richard until the Titus Regius was discovered, and is where Shakespeare got most of his 'facts' from for the play 'Richard the Third'. In contrast the second half of the book is Walpole's 'Historic Doubts', one of the first to proclaim Richard's innocence in the face of many years of Tudor propaganda and calumny.
Mr. Kendall does an excellant job in his research and his theories, but he is a tad too repetitive. He gives terrific analagies, but could have consolidated many of these and made easier to read. Some places are tedious to read. but the subject matter is so interesting that you plod through and are never disappointed. Great theories and his research is incredible. I only wish there was more DNA research available for this book. Great book.
