Me and 'chiko and the Shakes

The NYTimes' Michiko Kakutani absolutely hated Ron Rosenbaum's The Shakespeare Wars: Clashing Scholars, Public Fiascoes, Palace Coups. I found it flawed but often fascinating, especially in its opening section on the different Hamlets most people know nothing about. I'm glad to see someone else was not blind to the book's virtues.
