This gave an interesting perspective on the palace and its architecture/history/ usage. Having bought the Kindle version I was disappointed it didn't have any maps or drawings. With all the changes that occurred over the years things wee a bit confusing for me, trying to work out what it must have looked like, how it differed from what is seen today. I would have liked a bit more information too on the most recent years. Information was less dense from Napoleon 1 onwards.
It was good to gain some information on the town of Versailles itself which, while it contains a few nice buildings still, seems to be losing some of it's historic charm by the way older buildings are used, gutted etc.
A glossary on key personages would also have been helpful. Overall a good read, just not a great one.
