Worden is a period specialist, but he carries his learning lightly and refrains from academic prose, excessive detail, or a skew towards his research interests. He maintains a narrative flow while stepping back as necessary to provide background: his focus is on the political ruptions, but he treats the essential religious and military context and touches as appropriate on topics such as literature (his own area), foreign policy, economics, social changes, and local government.
The English Civil Wars 1640-1660 is an easy but informative read.
