In review

This book was full of information and obviously well researched but sounded like a computer generated narration.

Too focused

I was hoping for a broad overview of Scottish history. There was a lot on the Scottish Wars for Independence (William Wallace) but nothing between that time period and the Industrial Revolution. Then it went immediately to the present day.

Interesting up to a point.

I was initially impressed with the research but found two major flaws in the book. While not obligatory, I would have preferred a native Scot to narrate it. I feel that this led to numerous mispronounced place names that began to grate.

I also felt the book went from the time of the tobacco lords to modern times far two quickly and may have missed out on some of the events that have shaped our current and future status.

Felt incomplete

Narrator struggled a bit with some of the Scottish names and places, but clearly was doing their best with their American accent. This book probably would have better suited a narrator from the UK.

The book itself was very strangely structured. The beginning was focused enough, but the rest is almost entirely focused on Scotland's medieval period.

This portion was well written, but was hardly concise, as was advertised. It then skipped suddenly to the Industrial revolution, without even mention of the Jacobite rebellion, Act of Union or any other events in that 500 year period!

The book then suddenly finishes with the author's own political views on Brexit, which felt quite out of place.

Overall, this book was not fully concise nor complete. It's a shame, because it clearly had potential as a good introduction to Scottish history.
