External Reviews

"While the title says "Child's History", this book is quite relevant and apt for adults as well. I was not aware of Charles' contribution to non-fiction and that too something really quite enriching.

This is a heavy read for children so should can pick and choose areas that you may be interested in. Well written book." - Amazon Review.
