Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The book lacks depth. It provides nothing resembling an exhaustive list of elements; only a few basic forms and styles are covered. Further there is nil discussion concerning the meaning of the elements presented. The most a reader can learn is that crowns and lions rampant are symbols of Royalty, and some of that we have to infer. The work feels directed to early middle school children and should probably be marked as Young Reader.
While I found it to be informative, it did read a bit slow, and I had trouble staying with it til the end. My son - no interest in it at all.
Still, my ADD is my short coming, not the books, and so I still gave it high marks for originality and enjoyability. Based on a previous review I read here, I liked the idea of utilizing this book to create a themed birthday party with its information.
It also has served me well whilst painting my collection of medieval miniature soldiers,
Nice. Not thrilling. But Nice.
