"A rip-roaring yarn...a vast dramatis personae of emperors and princesses, marshals and bishops, mistresses and murderers....NAPOLEON does, as it claims, present the whole Napoleon, the public and the private face....Schom has a lively style, and a neat turn of phrase, and his book reads well."--Robert Gildea, The New York Times Book Review"Meticulously researched...Schom presents a rounded portrait not only of Napoleon but also of the principal figures in his extraordinary life...and brilliantly presents Napoleon's life while appropriately deflating his legend."--Dan Wick, Washington Post Book World"Polished, scholarly, and successful."--Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker"Superb. Mr. Schom has achieved every historian's dream; using exemplary scholarship to write a page-turning best seller."--Len Deighton, historian and novelist"A darkly nuanced biography.....In many ways, Schom's strengths as a historian match those of his protagonist....Schom reveals a tactical mastery of the events of Napoleon's life, calling to mind the emperor's grasp of terrain. His book is bold in scope, and ...his salvos are devastating."--Ed Voves, Philadelphia Inquirer"A badly needed comprehensive, one-volume life .[NAPOLEON] does a magnificent job of covering the full sweep of Napoleon's career."--John Maxwell Hamilton, Chicago Tribune"Vigorously researched and often brilliantly written.[an] ultimately balanced, no-nonsense portrait that has the benefit of 20th-century science."--Carolyn Nizzi Warmbold, Atlanta Journal/Atlanta Constitution"Schom has a lively style.....His very effective....[NAPOLEON] is a timely book."--Gregor Dallas, Los Angeles Times Book Review"This biography by Alan Schom willshake the Napoleonic clientele--and for good reasons, too."--David Chandler, author of THE CAMPAIGNS OF NAPOLEON"Napoleon has fascinated mankind for two centuries, and Mr. Schom's book is just as fascinating."--Bob Trimble, Dallas Morning News"Ambitious.readable, even gossipy."--Spencer C. Tucker, Fort Worth Star-Telegram"Always gripping...Schom's fine a major in-depth study....Professional historians and general readers will find NAPOLEON BONAPARTE an engrossing book."--Joseph H. Dugas, Grand Rapids Press"Powerful."--Joseph Losos, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
