Review: My son really liked this book. He’s 11 and he read it cover to cover within a few days and has now moved onto another of the author’s history books. As a lover of history myself I’m really pleased that he liked it so much.

Review: I didn’t know much about Alexander the Great before reading this book and now I feel like I have a much better understanding of his life. It started with a great intro and this book was quite in depth - but still written in a way that had great explanations and that children could understand. It had quite short chapters which was perfect for children. I didn’t realise quite how young he was and how good at strategy he was too. It also gave a good outline of others from that time like the people he battled with and that set the story well. If there was more books like this about different historical figures I would definitely pick them up.

    Description: Dominic Sandbrook's magnificent account of the late 1970s in Britain The late 1970s were Britain's years of strife and the good life. They saw inflation, riots, the peak of trade union power - and also the birth of home computers, the rise of the ready meal and the triumph of a Grantham grocer's daughter who would change everything. Dominic Sandbrook recreates this extraordinary period in all its chaos and contradiction, revealing it as a turning point in our recent history, where, in everything from families and schools to punk and Doctor Who, the future of the nation was being decided.' Magnificent. if you lived through the late Seventies - or, for that matter, even if you didn't - don't miss this book' Mail on Sunday' Sandbrook has created a specific style of narrative history, blending high politics, social change and popular culture. always readable and assured. [A] splendid book' Stephen Robinson, Sunday Times'[ Sandbrook] has a remarkable ability to turn a sow's ear into a sulk purse. His subject is depressing, but the book itself is a joy. Sandbrook is, without doubt, superb. Seasons in the Sun is a familiar story, yet seldom has it been told with such verve' Gerard De Groot, Seven'A brilliant historian. I had never fully appreciated what a truly horrible period it was until reading Sandbrook' A. N. Wilson, Spectator' Nuanced. Sandbrook has rummaged deep into the cultural life of the era to remind us how rich it was, from Bowie to Dennis Potter, Martin Amis to William Golding' Damian Whitworth, The Times' Sharply and fluently written. entertaining. By making you quite nostalgic for the present, Sandbrook has done a public service' Evening Standard.

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Make room Herodotus, stand down Bede, pipe down Pepys. there's a new history book in town. From the chart-topping podcast The Rest is History, a whistle-stop tour through the past - from Alexander the Great to Tolkein, the Wars of the Roses to Watergate. The nation's favourite historians Tom Holland and Dominic Sandbrook take on the most curious moments in history, answering the questions we didn't even think to ask: - Did the Trojan War actually happen? - What was the most disastrous party in history? - Was Richard Nixon more like Caligula or Claudius? - How did a hair appointment almost blow Churchill's cover? - Why did the Nazis believe they were descended from Atlantis? Whether it is sending historical figures to Casa Amor in a series of Love Island, ranking history's most famous eunuchs and pigeons (including Winky, the unsung hero of the Second World War), or debating the meaning of greatness, there is nothing too big or too small for Tom and Dominic to unpick. So run your Egyptian milk bath, strap up your best Spartan sandals, and prepare for a journey down the highways and byways of the human past.
