To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I really enjoyed this book. Easy to read and lots of great information on Shakespeare and each of his plays. I definitely recommend this book for students.
If I have a criticism of this book it's the amount of space dedicated to the "Who really wrote Shakespeare's plays?" Although it's obvious the author doesn't agree with the view that someone else penned the Bard's works, there is a lot of space (too much)in this book dedicated to looking at each major suspect.
One other small problem I have with this book is the editing. There are a large number of typos (too many) for a work like this. Annoying, but not a deal breaker. This is even a revised edition!!!
Despite these flaws, I DO recommend this as a great sourcebook on William Shakespeare.
Everything Shakespeare Book: Celebrate the life, times and works of the world's greatest storyteller (Everything Series) My daughter needed this book for her enrichment class and Amazon.com had it and mailed it to me immediately. Very satisfy with the service and delivery. The book is great and my daughter enjoyed it.
Marvelous Book. A primer on Shakespeare that is well presented. Just enough on each topic to give you understanding and direction. Perfect gift for a bright high schooler or more mature discoverer of an interest in the Bard. Once again, Kindle makes it readily available. Your own library right there.
