An interesting subject, but as the book progresses it becomes more commentary than history. The book could more aptly be titled 'Paul Johnson's Opinions about the History of the English People.' I still found it somewhat enjoyable, but it could have been much better.
I was a bit suspect of this book. I find Glenn Beck's show and political commentary to be about 50% interesting and 50% irritating on the rare occasions I listen. But this book is both inspires and teaches in profound ways. I highly recommend it.
