I had to read this book for my HRS class which is an introductory class on Ancient Greeks. When I first started reading the book I was just reading it to prepare for my exam but right off I started to like reading it. It's so easy to understand and very well written. I would recomend this book for just reading it because it's so good. It really tells everything important about the culture, and etc. of the Greeks.

While the book content is fine, the Kindle edition was hastily/cheaply prepared. In particular, the OCR software had trouble distinguishing the 'ri' combination from the letter 'n' so the text is filled with errors like 'vanous' (for 'various') and 'offenngs' (for 'offerings'). It is most disturbing when this occurs within a name ('Pans' for 'Paris') or uncommon words that a student may wish to look up. While it is possible to overlook such poor quality in a common romance novel or the like, it is quite unacceptable in a college textbook.
