Praise for Napoleon Bonaparte

"A rip-roaring yarn...a vast dramatis personae of emperors and princesses, marshals and bishops, mistresses and murderers...Napoleon does, as it claims, present the whole Napoleon, the public and the private face...Schom has a lively style, and a neat turn of phase, and his book reads well."
--Robert Gildea, New York Times Book Review

"Meticulously researched...Schom presents a rounded portrait not only of Napoleon but also of the principle figures in his extraordinary life...and brilliantly presents Napoleon& 39;s life while appropriately deflating his legend."
--Dan Wick, Washington Post Book World

"Polished, scholarly, and successful."
--Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker
