Reviews

"This well-written and informative study....is the result of many years of research in public and private archives in the United States, Romania, and Great Britain, years during which the author consulted a vast bibliography that constitutes the basis for the present work. Thanks to these efforts, the author succeeds to make known numerous previously unpublished pieces of information that add both charm and depth to his work....Both the professional historian and the interested reader will benefit from this excellent monograph elaborated with zeal and professionalism by Paul Quinlan."-Romanian Civilization "This anecdotal account is gripping, from Carol's childhood to the last gasp of the former monarch in exile....Quinlan sets forth a stimulating account of a troubled boy and man who vainly sought equilibrium in an unbalanced milieu."-American Historical Review "Carol was, by no means, a good king, or even a decent person. But he does merit a carefully researched and documented biography, and he gets a really good one from Quinlan....Although a scholarly tome, The Playboy King is an easy read....What makes the book so good (apart from Quinlan's comfortable writing style) are the sources, some of which are in Roumania, and were not accessed by other biographers."-Royal Book News ?This anecdotal account is gripping, from Carol's childhood to the last gasp of the former monarch in exile....Quinlan sets forth a stimulating account of a troubled boy and man who vainly sought equilibrium in an unbalanced milieu.?-American Historical Review ?Carol was, by no means, a good king, or even a decent person.
