I picked this book on amazon when it was first published. I’m a fan of the author’s blog, though I don’t always have time to read it. I knew some of the information would be repetitive, but I was expecting some new information as well.
I wasn’t expecting that within the book itself, there was a lot of repeat information. I got the impression she just gathered up all the articles on her blog with the same tag & put them together as a book, instead of actually editing the articles by hand to make sure they didn’t mention the same info over & over again. A few beta readers probably would have helped, too.
That being said – I do enjoy Ridgway’s blog & I am a big Tudor buff – both the fiction stuff & the real actual historical facts & I do think this book is a great place to start, especially if you are new to her blog.
