Reviews

"MacMillan deftly and engagingly shows that history is a process of capturing the minutiae of life as much as time s epic strokes." -- Publishers Weekly, Starred Review.
"A concise, educational overview of some of the men and women who have carved out spots in the annals of history and why they should be remembered. Fans of the author are in for another treat." -- Kirkus
"Avoiding arid timelines, MacMillan, an Oxford professor, instead provides intimate human encounters. She seems to love sifting through the revealing details. 'I want to gossip, ' she confesses and so do we." -- The New York Times "
