What the Critics Say

"The strength of Detwiler's accomplishment lies in his ability to explain concisely what was at the root of complex matters such as the lay investiture controversy-and to choose the right things to explain." (Library Journal)

"He capsulizes main German trends and thoughts in an exciting manner so that the reader is easily motivated to learn more about German history." (German Quarterly)

    Story
    "Worst reader ever."
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The computer-generated voice on my e-reader gives a smoother presentation and adds more inflection than this reader. He does not appear to understand the concept of phrasing, because it sounds like he takes a breath in between each word. It was so bad I could not finish what might have been an interesting book.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The book has a lot of interesting information, but buy the book, do not buy the audiobook.
