'Richard III (Makers of History Series) ' Summary
A large part of the problem is an almost nonexistent formatting. It seems as if there are heading and subheadings which are presented in the same typeface as the narrative, which makes it extremely difficult to decipher. In the same way, some charts, which may have been useful in a well-designed graphic, are presented as a jumble of words.
The author seems to forget the reader does not already have much knowledge of the subject, so makes too general statements such as Richard “became such a monster, morally, when he grew to be a man, that the people believed that he was born such a monster in person.”
He continues in this vein, without citing documentation, “The story was that he came into the world very ugly in face and distorted in form, and that his teeth were already grown…It is very doubtful, however, whether any of these stories are true. It is most probable that at his birth he looked like any other child.”
