“[Ellis] is a storyteller, and a superb one . . . no historian is better at making a complicated jumble of events clear and comprehensible.” —The New York Review of Books

“Illuminating . . . entertaining. . . .  Ellis has done us a great service.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Delightful. . . . Ellis is the reigning master of the episodic approach to history.” —The Boston Globe
