How To Give A Proofreader A Heart Attack

I'm sure you're all familiar with Canute the Great, the Viking king who ruled a good deal of northern Europe in the early decades of the 11th century.

Historian M.J. Trow, in his biography of the medieval king, opts for a slightly less orthodox spelling of the name. Excerpts from the dustjacket, after the jump.

"In this lively and entertaining biography, M.J. Trow exposes that tale as a myth and shows us instead the real Cnut."

"Under Cnut, England's ambitious and bloody foreign policy led to the defeat of the kings of both Sweden and Norway."

"Cnut was the most powerful king in Europe."
