This book is obviously a standard in the area of study concerning St. Patricks life and impact on Ireland. It is a very factual telling of the story, and the addition of new notes and additional info in the margins helps to fill out the story a bit.
There is a concerning lack of willingness to embrace some of the more 'unexplainable' pieces/stories that surround Patrick's life, and so may miss a bit of what it is to tell His story well.
