About the book:

All of us want to read Shakespeare. But today, who has the time?
Now, with this book, discover how easily you can become a connoisseur of all Shakespeares greatest plays (and many of the sonnets) in less time than it takes to read one play conventionally.

These skillful summaries offer up the highlights of Shakespeares timeless masterpieces, to quickly and painlessly acquaint readers with Shakespeare, his world, his words, and his most noteworthy works.

A Shakespeare at a Glance chapter includes a brief biography, excerpts from some of his greatest poems, and samplings of his rapier wit and level-headed wisdom. And a witty section, entitled Shakespearean Insults, unlocks a door into the playwrights psyche by letting you unleash your own playfully biting barbs.

A coffee break is more than enough time to assimilate a plays plots and characters, and give you a flavour of the language. In addition the insightful commentary will help you form your own opinions about its relevance. In a short time, you will have mastered the essence of Shakespearean thought.
If, as Shakespeare claims, all the worlds a stage, this volume is your cue to join in on the act.
