I am currently reading it and I have to say it is really very interesting. I originally bought it just to hear about Days but the story behind the Corday family is turning out to be far more entertaining.
but he got a few things wrong. Or maybe just glossed over. Like the story of Doug and Addie and Julie. Never brought out that Doug and Julie were planning on running away and Addie dangled money in front of Doug, thus "forcing" him to marry her and leave Julie. There may have been other things, but that one really stood out in my mind.
