I first purchased the Kindle version of this book so I could start reading it right away, but I found out very early on (first page or two) that NONE of the end notes (which the author uses diligently) are linked. So if you want to check the source or the author's notes/comments on what she just inserted, you have to bookmark your page, then "Go To" that portion of the book in the back, then find the corresponding note. Then return to the Go To "Notes" page, to get back to reading. Inexcusable formatting for a digital version of a history book! I requested a refund from Amazon (and they gave it to me) and ordered a "Used" copy of this book to read. I hope the book is worth this much effort!!

As good as most, better than some. I learned several interesting facts about Paulette. If you are interested in the period you should like it.

William Shakespeare lived after William Paulet and yet nowhere near as much is known about his life as the subject of this very interesting history.

Margaret Scard has meticulously detailed the life and background of the courtier, William Paulet who was powerful during the reigns of four of the five Tudor monarchs. William Paulet, as the title intimates, survived to die a very old man when so many of his courtier contemporaries succumbed to disease and the executioner's block (some from sentences pronounced by Paulet himself!). I found this history fascinating because of the detailing of what it takes to be a survivor; in short, assiduous attention to detail, administrative competence and maintenance of good relations with all. A great history of a very successful politician in a tumultous historical period and a marvellously well documented and researched book.

Paulet knew how to administer government departments so that they were cost efficient and smooth running for the benefit of the monarchs and the common folk. He also knew how to compromise with his foes so that he could get things done. We need someone like him in Congress right now! A fascinating read about England's Middle Ages and the colorful personalities that made this period so interesting.

This is a great book on many levels. The story is fascinating, especially considering the times. It's amazing to learn what William Paulet experienced and to see how he survived it all. Best of all, the author's research and documentation is excellent and extremely thorough. Whether you're looking for a fascinating story about this era or whether you're researching this era, this is a book you don't want to miss!

A fascinating window into a life five hundred years ago and the experience of working within the Tudor government. I enjoyed the fairly intricate detail.
