I really liked this overview of Shakespeare. The author does a great job of synthesizing why Shakespeare still matters today and what is so special about his plays. The pictures are beautiful, too!

Sorry, I'm still not convinced that this will actually have an influence on the target audience. Nor did I learn anything to help me want to read more of the plays. It didn't even mention his sonnets.
