    One thought on “Henry VIII's Health in a Nutshell”

    1. This History in a Nutshell series is absolutely brilliant First, it succinctly explains the key points of Henry VIII s life, not going too in depth on certain things and also explaining just enough so you understood what was going on and roughly when it occurred To me, that s just great There need to be books out there for people who are interested on a very narrow topic, but don t want to learn about the whole time period that topic is centered around Then, this book went into a lot of detail [...]

    2. Henry VIII s Health in a Nutshell by Kyra Cornelius KramerKindle EditionWill Henry VIII, Napoleon, Mary, Queen of Scots, and Rasputin be assigned new cures to their maladies More than likely as modern medical science will continually bring up possible diagnoses for our historical figures Theories have continually changed over the years but it does not make them any less interesting Therefore, it was with great curiosity that I approached this title.Before embarking on the discussion of the text [...]

    3. Interesting book Well written worth a read.Explained s several hypotheses about a medical cause for his troubles and how they compare with history s notes A quick read.

    4. I have to say that Kramer had me at the phrase reproductively challenged What a brilliant and catchy way to describe Henry s long suffering attempts to gain a son and male heir to his throne Kramer manages to broach this rather tragic and sad subject with a touch of humour which leaves the reader intrigued and wanting to read of her book to learn Within the pages of Henry VIII s Health in a Nutshell Kramer discusses various illnesses and injuries that Henry VIII suffered throughout his life Sh [...]

    5. Prince Jekyll or King Hyde The author selectively chooses historical facts, and invents a few , to justify her theory that Henry VIII was a golden, flawless God until he turned 40, then suddenly, without reason or warning, turned into a homicidal psychopath Sorry, not buying it Not recommended.

    6. A fantastic little book The health of Henry VIII fascinates anyone with even a slight interest in Tudor history Was he brain damaged after his fall Was he twisted and evil How bad were his ulcers on his legs And what measurement was his waist line All those questions and are answered here in this book by Kyra Kramer, who discusses the health of Henry VIII both physically and mentally, throughout his life The History in a Nutshell series really are terrific

    7. This is a great little book So much solid info packed into a readable bundle We have all those who love Tudor history wondered what was the true story with Henry VIII and his dramatic transformation How did his health contribute to that downturn Ms Kramer does an excellent job of providing facts along with speculation, and it gives us a good picture as to what probably was the case with Henry.

    8. InterestingA enjoyable account for Henry viii on how he wasn t always the overweight tyrant that springs to mind But a good account of the possibilities of how he became that way.

    9. Very interesting and thoughtout Loved it The subject matter is so interesting and I am so enthralled with the monarchy in England The author really did some homework with this one Love to have the King exhumed and DNA test done History is great
