I’m not going to lie, I don’t really know what I was expecting when I picked up this book. I actually can’t even tell you why I picked it up. Once I found out what it was about, I was fully expecting a book full of depressing chat. I was expecting for this book to make me feel awful and overwhelmed. Especially when I found out that a doctor wrote it. However, I am happy to say that I was completely wrong. In fact, I am very impressed with how transparent the doctor was as he wrote this book. He even Made it easy for anybody to follow along with. If it was a little too complex, he took the time to explain it. I’m very impressed and very thankful that I read the book.

I’ve read many books about King Henry VIII. Mostly fiction if I’m being honest. It’s always had me curious to learn more about that time frame. Most of the books that I’ve read have mostly focused on him and sometimes his wives. This covers the family in general. This was very informative. I actually wound up buying a copy so I can read it a second time and make highlights and notes. I’d also like to explore the book references made in the book for further reading on the family. I really recommend this for all the history buffs who love to read about the time period and about the Tudors.\

This book is full of historical information. I learned so much from it. I also really enjoyed the sassy comments from the author. It’s not every day you read a nonfiction historical book and get some comedy from it. I enjoyed this so much that I bought copies for two people who are important to me. I also have plans to reread it to take notes and make a list of the books referenced in it so that I can get them and read them too. I definitely recommend this book.

I was actually surprised to find that this book was nonfiction. I was expecting a fantasy novel of some kind. Or something similar at the least. I really enjoyed the book anyway. I feel like I learned a lot about an expedition that I had never heard about until now. There was only one part of the book that I didn’t really care for. I won’t get into the details, but it was a very gory thing that happens in a pack of dogs. I really wish I could unread it and get it out of my brain. Because of this and other things that happen through the book, I do caution being aware of triggers before getting into it. There are references of violent incidents that happen through the entire expedition. This includes animal violence.

I came into this book thinking it would be this big to do about how amazing Bezos is. I was fully expecting it to talk about his accomplishments and what have you. It wasn’t though. It talks about great business strategies and gives great examples. I really felt like I learned a lot I actually bought a copy to highlight and take notes the next time I read it. I got my mother a copy too. It makes me feel like I could plan things and achieve great things.

This book was educational and interesting. I discovered that it’s a republish from a book written in the 1920s. When I first got the book, I was fully expecting a psychological book. I wasn’t expecting a religious science book. Not that I’m complaining. As I stated, I learned a lot. I bought a copy of an older version for my uncle to read. He enjoyed it as well.

This book talks about how to become a great leader and how to achieve greatness. I really loved reading this book. I’ll be reading it more in my life. I have never had an interest in being a leader or a manager. This book makes me reconsider that. It makes me feel like I could achieve great things. I guess that’s the point of the book. I fully recommend this book. Especially for those looking to lead.

I feel like I learned something that I didn’t know about World War 2 with this book. Got to know people I’d never heard of before. I mean I get that there’s no way that school can teach everything that happens in history. I do think that there are ways that more can be added. That’s just my opinion. Anway. My point is that I learned something new with this book. I fully recommend it.

I am still blown away by this book. I’m most likely going to read it again one day. I’m also going to read anything else about this that I can. There are so many things that I didn’t know. I mean, to be fair, I was basically a kid when most of this went down. This book covers a scandalous affair. It also covers some of the heavier side effects of affairs. There are references to gaslighting and mental abuse as well. I went into the book blindly and I’m really not sure what I was getting into. Once I figured it out though, I was blown away. I definitely recommend this book.
