    "As dry as it is informative"

    Certainly, the language used made it difficult at times to listen and decipher what was being said.
    That being said, a more compete history of the Holy Roman Empire shall not be found, I think

    "Downgrade for style"

    Although I have a great interest in the subject matter and believe that there is much good content here, I found the pedantic writing style and the matching reading more than a little off putting.

    As an audiobook, it just doesn't work.
