Reviews for Life in Medieval Europe: Fact and Fiction

Cybulskie is a good writer, with an easy reading manner that makes the subject easy to understand and the pages fly by. Very nice introduction to the period. Highly recommended, possibly even as a text book. --Rosie Writes ...well organized and accessibly written [...] a good starting point for students of history who want to examine quotidian life. --Booklist To say that this book was fun to read would be an understatement. I honestly did not want to stop reading this book... educational and entertaining all at the same time. Simply a wonderful resource... I highly suggest you include, Life in Medieval Europe to your book collection. --Adventures of a Tudor Nerd An eye opener... Brilliant. --Books Monthly ...an excellent book... It is refreshing to finally see a book that puts to bed all the false impressions and caricature of medieval life as depicted in so much popular media. --Battles and Book Reviews
