  1. 4 out of 5

    Brandon Clark

    A Genius in His Right As a writer of his millennium, mastermind Shakespeare takes his level of literary skills to the minds of billions. This biography on the master is very, very thought-provoking. Knowing that he has done what he has done allows all of mankind to understand what can be done by a person. In times like now we need a man in the past like him. And this book helps us understand why.

    Superficial Provides some interesting bits of information, despite being, on the whole, fairly superficial. Not the best dout for understanding Shakespeare.
