This is an excellent and unbiased attempt to drill down into the known facts about the player from Stratford and to see what actual evidence there is that he wrote the plays by ‘William Shakespeare’.
This author has no academic brief or pre-conceived notions so he starts his investigations neither a member of the faithful nor a heretic on the Authorship question.
The outcome is a book which comprehensively demolishes the notion that the bloke from Stratford was the author behind the pseudonym Shakespeare.
This is an excellent book, true believers in William S from Stratford will not be influenced, a faith is emotional not rational.
The rest of us can really enjoy the possibilities that are opened up by the authorship mystery that is revealed. I challenge anyone to remain convinced of the conventional view about Shakespeare once they have read this book. ( )
