I've read the first two volumes and they are great. This one is better if for no other reason then that it has the biographies of Alexander and Caesar. They start the book and I cannot wait to read them. Plutarch is witty, chatty, and unable to ignore a gossipy tid-bit. You'll enjoy this and the price is free!

The translation of Plutarch's biographies is readable and fine enough. It is the e-book presentation that gives difficulties. A table of contents would be most useufull as there is no easy way to negotiate the content from biography to giography. Similarly, finding the notes for any given biography or going back to refer to them is a challenge in this edition. At the price, however, complaining seems asking perhaps too much.

Amazing classic. Dr. Rufus Fears uses it extensively to develop his ancient biographies in the Great Courses Series with The Learning Co.. I recommend all his courses highly, and a perfect introduction to Plutarch. They are available on Amazon.
