   Taxation Without Representation
He also wrote, "I love George III." He goes too far in trying to make the case that the tax was just a pretext for doing so, he said. Rush Limbaugh said I didn't buy his argument on that, even though he tried. He contends that the Colonists were ready to strike on their own, and they needed a pretext.
   way too detailed
Pauley Love, the author of several successful books, was disappointed by this one. Very dry and very detailed, Hughes said. Couldn't finish it.
   Fascinating book; physically difficult to read
The Roberts book enables us even more to understand the great hypocrisy of the American Revolution beginning with We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal and continuing with the spurious charges against George III. Physically, I find the book difficult to hold and the print difficult to read, making my pace maddeningly slow. I'm amazed by the depth of Mr. Roberts' scholarship after previously writing about Churchill and Napoleon.
   It's by Andrew Roberts -- What's Not to Like
It is a book of superlative quality. Andrew Roberts has been one of my favorite historians for a long time. History aside, the details of Parliamentary tactics and ministries have been a welcome addition to my headspace.
   Will the real King George please stand up?
I can't help but smile when I think of the hilarious portrayal of King George III in the Broadway musical, Hamilton. But I think it's safe to say we were treated to the worst version of His Majesty in those numbers. Indeed, ever since David McCollough's book "1776" there may be more to King George III than we thought. Andrew Roberts has given us the true story of a key figure in world history. Roberts is neither sympathetic nor overly critical of the government's actions. Burrell peels back the misconceptions with vivid accounts of real events that defined the man, his reign, and the birth of a new nation. No one has ever written a book like this. Thanks for all the support, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
   The King We Didn't Know
Even in the United States, Mr. George III is not fondly remembered. I recommend Andrew Roberts' new book, "Broken: The Fall of James Dean," to anyone who wants to get a better, clearer understanding of the English writer. Roberts paints a picture of a pious and cultured monarch, who despite losing a few friends, could not save Britain from Charles James Fox and rallying his country to fight Napoleon. Roberts argues that bipolar disorder was the cause of George's madness. 0 3171201 The writer of this book, Paul Roberts, offers a compelling argument for why depression is the cause of George's madness. If you enjoy American or British history, you will find this book to be very useful.
