    I only skimmed the book. A lot of speculations. I just seem to not appreciate second hand accounts lol! The life of William Wallace seems cool and superfluous at times.

    A fascinating read in which the author refers to several other versions of Wallace's life from Blind Harry's book written in 1600s up to present day. He also discusses the movie Braveheart (including the movie's historical errors) using references and personal opinions based on those references.

    Really enjoyed this. Not a great deal of written evidence about William Wallace so there was understandably a lot of speculation, but that's half the fun of reading about this time in Scottish history.

    This is an outstandingly well researched work on the life of William Wallace. I'd say it is the most comprehensive work I've read on the epic Scottish warrior who changed a nation. I did find it could have used a good editor, but if you are researching William Wallace, this it your go-to book.

    This is the best biography of William Wallace that is currently available. The author is often forced to speculate about Wallace's actions and motives - inevitably so, due to the nature of the sources and gaps in the record - but this is a well-researched and insightful book.

    An interesting book about one of the world's great heroes. Although it is not a problem of the book, there are very few facts known about his life. This necessitates a lot of speculation. However, I think the information could have been presented more in a more clear and lively manner.

    A scholarly work, probably intended more for academics than casual readers. But I found the information provided to be interesting.

    not a bad read but too much speculation for my liking.
