The following is a personality profile of A J P Taylor based on his work.
A J P Taylor is social.
He is empathetic, he feels what others feel and is compassionate towards them. He is outgoing as well: he makes friends easily and feel comfortable around other people. But, A J P Taylor is also altruistic: he feels fulfilled when helping others, and will go out of his way to do so.
More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for belongingness.
Considers helping others to guide a large part of what he does: he thinks it is important to take care of the people around him. He is also relatively unconcerned with tradition: he cares more about making his own path than following what others have done.
The book's condition and delivery were fine, but the book itself isn't intended for this reader. It assumes a great deal of knowledge of European history. I just got lost in its wealth of detail. Read More
