Britishnd world history I found this book extremely disappointing The idea of Mein Tierpark und Tropenaquarium Hagenbeck: Bachems Wimmelbilder aping the Lytton Strachey model of picking several prominent people from the Victorian periodnd Detecting Danger Capitol K 9 Unit arguing for their valuend relevance is good Close Pursuit although it has been done before eg by A N Wilson What lets this book down is the narrow range of source material used to inform the book b the limited Pollen Vurt and unimaginative choice of subjects c thewkward prose style Motherless Brooklyn and d the lack of depth ofnalysisThe chapters on such well known nd obvious subjects such s Peel Palmerston Disraeli Streetwise German and Gladstonere little than indifferent student essays It does not get much better when the The Twelve Dancing Princesses author considers ueen Victoriand Prince Albert There is some repetition Storm and Fury andwkward cross referencing in many of the chapters which The Homeplace (Singing River Series again read like the sort of thingn A Level student would write The essay on W G Grace was very convoluted in terms of constructing Refugee Blacks A Conservative Family Part II a narrative from the statistical careerIn terms of subjectslthough I found the essays on Sleeman Full Tilt Kate Page and Dicey informative I found myselfsking whether they were really worthy

to be properly directed to Archive 17 authoritativend up to date sources that enable further study This is not the case here The bibliography is very limited La petite joueuse d'checs and does not even include the Lytton Strachey works that Mr Rees Mogg ist pains to criticiseThere The Beltway Beast are sadly number of factual errors For example Gladstone is supposed to have fought Loving Monsters and defeated the Boers in South Africa p283 He did not The Boers of the Transvaal defeated British force Hopscotch at Majuba Hillnd therefore won what is called the First Boer War in 1881 Four pages later General Gordon is given Bliss a knighthood wrongnd in the essay on Gordon itself he is described Der Ernährungskompass as the leader of small British force fighting gainst ll the odds in the Sudan Wrong The Natural Candida Cleanse again Gordon was besieged in Khartoum with garrison of Egyptian Arrow and Sudanese troopsI regret being critical because I uitedmire the Managing Humans: Biting and Humorous Tales of a Software Engineering Manager author for his courteousnd considered demeanour but this is not Karmila a good booknd the cynic in me feels that if it had been written by someone who is not public figure it would never have been published Sad This is n excellent book Chasing Mr Wrong Chasing Love albeit the evidentlygenda driven reviews published in The Guardian Ask Anything and Your Body Will Answer A Personal Journey Through Integrated Awareness and so forth There is great flairnd elouence to this book Out Now and one need not uestion its historical integritys
