It is DEFINITELY a scholarly work, very interesting, but interspersed with Latin sentences and sometimes obscure citations, familiar only to an Oxbridge alumnus.
So, I would recommend it only if you are ready for some serious, dedicated reading.
If you, like me, expect an entertaining and interesting travelogue with references to ancient history, give it a second thought.
