Fun to read...Unlike many, this book is inhabited by a real, recognisable man, the sort you might see interviewed in a newspaper...An enjoyable interrogation of our national enigma, free of pedantry and bardolatry. -Peter Lewis, Daily Mail (London)

Holden's book is lively, readable, and lit with a real enthusiasm for the plays and poetry. It should reach a wide audience, who will be fascinated with the riddles which make up Shakespeare's life story.-John Mortimer, The Observer (London)

Deserves its place in the turbulent and constantly expanding firmament of Shakespearean studies.-Peter Ackroyd, The Time (London)
