Review by

Thorough biography of that not very popular king. I love when historical biography goes beyond dealing with any particular person but provides a background that would affect the formation and actions of that person. This book does that beautifully. The only shortcoming I find is that author doesn't go into more details about James' personal life, relationship with his wife, etc.
