Well written and easy to follow. The author kindly wraps social and cultural norms around historical events. For instance, the history of Bohemia is seen through a common thread of the people's high regard for justice from traditional faith through to Christianization. I also liked the way the author presented rulers in context of their problems, their familial obligations and the reasons for their alliances and the dissolution of those alliances. He also made it easy to see the repurcssions of cruel decisions as most people of any time remember massacres that occur by their rulers or by their enemies. If you are studying this period, this makes a good core history upon which to base further inquiry.
