    Good, the Bad and the Unready: The Remarkable Truth Behind History's Strangest Nicknames

    By: Robert Easton

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    The Good, the Bad and the Unready is the perfect book for discovering how one man could be both Charles the Scourge of God and Charles the Affable. Or who exactly it was that Vlad impaled. Or how some eighteen people earned the appellation 'the Great' (and that's not including Anthony the Great Bastard and Anne the Great Whore). Or why Joan the Mad never went anywhere without her husband's corpse.

    The Reverend Robert Easton's irreverent guide to the most peculiar nicknames of history gives brief, funny biographies of not just the Good, the Bad and the Unready, but also the Shaggy, the Worthless, the Silly, the Elephant, the King of Slops and many more. Everybody history remembers for being blessed - or, more often, cursed - with a memorable moniker.
