Reviews

All doubts removed: John was no good ... a fair and rounded picture of the king and his reign -- Allan Massie * Spectator * Scholarly and readable ... the John that emerges is still a tyrant, but a more complex figure in a complex time. * Daily Telegraph * Jaunty, authoritative ... [a] fine, timely study of English history's greatest pantomime villain. -- Dan Jones * Sunday Times * Church provides readers with a lively, nuanced and balanced account of the king, his family, upbringing and reign [...] Overall, this is a hugely enjoyable and beautifully researched biography. -- Louise Wilkinson * BBC History Magazine * Church's scholarly account restores complexity to the myth of John as a cruel, unstable ogre. -- Nicholas Shakespeare * Sunday Telegraph *
