    " What truly motivated this man? He is an enigma composed of selfishness, lust, duty, and greatness. We will never really know what he was thinking, but it is fun to puzzle over it. "

    " Carolly Erickson stands among the best and most accessible of the Tudor biographers, with Antonia Fraser and Allison Wier. She presents the chronology in such a way that the human characters shine through. This book is no exception. "

    " A well written biography (at least to a lay person). The author's style makes it easy to follow and remember described dates and events. "

    " I wanted some hard history on the reign of Henry VIII after greatly enjoying "The Other Boleyn Girl." This history fits the bill. It's balanced and well researched. "
