    I appreciate this book for its research Two issues I have are both with Hart First it appears to be his intent to reduce Collins' position in history by using factual research then injecting uestion into situations alluded to by the 'evidence' This served to cheapen the discussion by saying things along the lines of 'coul

    The book doesn't grab me It makes assumptions that I know a heap of Irish history' the author makes historical references that he assumes are general knowledge It also wasn't moving fast enough for me to keep it up The book cover is great but it needs to move faster

I finally finished Mick The Real Michael Collins by Peter Hart which I began almost exactly one year ago My attraction to this book was my obvious admiration of Collins and the opportunity to read a new biography there have been many before Although I was excited I was also wary because this book was supposed to take a not very flattering look at Collins life I found this to be true as Hart attempted to look through the praise and hero worship that has accompanied Collins since his untimely death in 1922 Hart in several places goes too far interjecting spite and taking the opposite position just to stir things upI can say one good thing about the effect the book has had on me though if I had not been reading this book I would never have chosen the topic I did for my final university history paper and broken new ground in the canon of Collins literature Overall I found it to be very informative and an exc
