David Starkey, one of the world's leading television historians and authors talks to BookD minutes before his introductory launch and talk about his app Kings and Queens which was given on the final day at this year's London Book Fair.
David discusses the idea of modern technology and how innovative thinking in publishing changes the role of the author entirely especially when regarding his particular writing ethic. In his own words when describing this app, "It actually shows in a very clear way, the chronology of history in a very simple timeline."
Students who haven't studied history chronologically will love this, as will the passionate folk for such a vast subject as it contextualises what you want to know. It marks a new era for historical detail which isn't in the shape of a book for the shelf, a folder full of notes, or a drab lecture series given by stiffs in tweed.
