    1. A thorough account of Byron's life and works, yet not overbearingly detailed - just right! I'm not gonna lie - I liked that about half the book was pictures. But only because the artwork was so tasteful and relevant - in histories and biographies, all the various names can get shuffled up in one's head, so it's always nice to have a face to go with a name. Byron was a fascinating man, somewhat different than I'd pictured him, and this was a great way to learn about him!
