This book is pseudo history. Author presents his conjectures as facts without sourcing his ideas. Or uses sources recognized as pseudo history by noted historians.

why did Jean Coeur de Lapin capitalize all of the letters in his review; it is as if he is shouting at everyone. he has never published anything and does not have the credentials to criticize anyone else's work. his opinion that the book has mistakes in geography, history, and the pedigree charts shows his ignorance of the materials. His opinion that the book is not an easy book to use just shows his level of education. indeed, he never finished college and has no degrees except a high-school diploma. His comment that the book should be "verrrrry customer friendly" shows that his reading-level is that of a fifth-grader. alas, it is quite likely that he is in the fifth-grade. too, another tell tale sign of just how ignorant de Lapin is, is his opinion that Hughes' research is questionable shows that de Lapin is not familiar with the sources which appear in the book's bibliography. one can tell he is not familiar with the subject and that
his review is his attempt to discredit the author, and actually nothing to do with the book, only the book's author. his advice to not buy the book shows his true motive. my advice to de Lapin is to go back to your comic books and leave book reviews to academics.
