After listening to this book, I came away with believing that the Author thinks Ireland would have been better off if the Catholics would have just fell over dead and left their island to the Brits.
Historical events such as the famine and Oliver Cromwell were glossed over. (The Author did go out of his way to tell us the benefits of the famine for Pete's sake!) and that the trouble with Northern Ireland is the reluctance of the Catholic minority to submit to the Protestant majority.
Their is no such thing as an unbiased political history, but I felt like the Author not only did not even try for impartiality, he used this as a platform to further his bias.
Then again, if your are an Anglophile, dig in!
