    This is a cute little book on the "players" and way of life in the Tudor period. I would definitely have enjoyed some more specifics on how conditions differed between the 5 Tudor monarchs - most info just had thrown in facts about life during one or two different monarchs. E.g. the food chapter was focused on Elizabeth I and her court, but what about the feasts of the other four?Some chapters too felt like listings of objects or facts. Like the last one, about clothing. Which makes it hard to r [...]

    A little guide to Tudor England, looks at life across all social strands from the nobility to the commoner. Clothing, health and food are all covered along with the monarchs themselves and those who worked for them.Although I guess this is just an overview on the subject (brought out for the Chrsitmas market) it's a little too brief at times, the black and white illustrations are dull and I really disliked the harsh comments about the Plantagenets. Some of the information was interesting but the [...]

    Review - I was pleasantly surprised by this book because it is quite detailed for something so small. It breaks the information down into easily digestible chunks for those not quite so into their Tudor history as I am. For Tudor buffs I think it's a handy book to have around for when you have those blank moments when you can't remember little nuggets. It's well-written and cleverly handled.General Subject/s? - History / TudorsRecommend? – YesRating - 18/20

    A great little book about different aspects of Royalty and the common people in Tudor times, quick chapters on everything from giving birth, to food and going to the toilet etc

    A very vague representation of court life in Tudor England. It was informative and flowed nicely from one chapter to the next but it lacked the rich detail I wanted. Most of the information read could have easily been found in Tudor biographies.I also found the book have a few inconsistencies with factual information. For example, Margaret of Beaufort was thirteen when she gave birth to Henry VII and not the fourteen noted by Bullen. Beyond the inconsistencies was the use of the easygoing term ' [...]

    I got this book in January but after starting it, I put it back on my shelf whilst tidying and kind of forgot about it but I finally picked it up again the other day and finished it! The information is very short and easily digestible; it is filled with anecdotes and other facts breaking up sections of texts; it covers pretty much everything you have ever wanted to know about life in the Tudor era. Whilst it focusses a fair amount on the monarchy itself, it also sheds light on the habits etc of [...]

    Short guide to the Tudor era; concise and to the point, it tells the 'highlights' of the reigns of those infamous monarchs with some added info about what it was like to be an ordinary person in those times. Good for someone with little knowledge of that historical era wishing to get an overview of the time period.

    Extremely brief overview of various aspects of Tudor life. Bit of a cash-in as its a pretty little volume but doesn't contain much more then could be found in any other book. Still, was entertaining for an hour or two, even though the author has a difficulty calculating ages.

    Very basic detail on the Tudor monarchs and Way of life in those times! Perfect for someone wanting just a little more detail from the main story they already know. Great Christmas present this book was :) and as a Tudor fan I enjoyed this book!

    Close to what I call a bathroom book at our home. Full of interesting (and sometimes disgusting or disturbing) factoids on how life was for, not just the Royals and upper class, but for the common man during the Tudor era.

    Perfect introduction and easy read. :)
