Shakespeare: The World as Stage (Eminent Lives)

Shakespeare: The World as Stage - Bill Bryson A brief and easy biography that breezes through the main phases of William Shakespeare's life at warp speed. The main point seems to be that little can be known about the man, so most biographies (including this one) are all conjecture and supposition. Enough background information is provides so that it's not necessary to have in depth knowledge of Shakespeare, his life, and Elizabethan England prior to reading. Bill Bryson is very funny but I wouldn't call this book a laugh riot.
