Reviews - What do our customers think?
I am the author  Apr 29, 2001
Hello All,

I write this in response to the reader from Birmingham, England, who was kind enough to (a) buy my book and (b) comment upon it. It is not a work of fiction. It is fact. I researched everything I wrote. I am sorry the reader missed my point about Pope Joan. As explained in my book, for centuries the Church believed she had existed. It was only later that historians concluded that she had not. The most important facet about Joan is that people believed she was elected as the best available candidate. The legend never "hinted that she had governed unwisely, or had been a bad pope. Her downfall resulted merely from her becoming an unwed mother."

Again, I thank the reader. I wrote the book for kicks. I love history and I love humor. I will be the first to admit that it is not a masterpiece. It is not J.R.R. Tolkien or Dave Barry, my literary heroes. That is why I rated it a "3" (most humbly).

Slainte,

Mike Wall

 
Should have done better research  Apr 9, 2001
History for Idiots tries to be factual but it seems the author didn't know how to distinguish fact from fiction. For example, while he's right about some of the popes' lives, he gets it wrong in several places, in particular about "Pope Joan" whom all reputable historians rightly regard as a myth. So the reader ends up wondering how much more of the book is factually in error.

The format is amusing though. It's just a pity the research wasn't thorough. A much better book on the papacy is Patrick Madrid's "Pope Fiction".
