The binding of this brand-new version of a Loeb classic is poor though. I bought it NEW from Amazon like you're thinking about doing right after you're done reading reviews in order to justify your next purchase. Just know that you're looking at the latest version from Harvard University Press, specifically the 2000 reprint. See the next paragraph.
I own the 1998 reset/reprinting by Loeb, supposedly the exact same book but one which is FAR superior to this recycled book mock duck. Aside from the slightly jaundiced paper color alone, is 2) ISBN 0674991451's sheer anorexia: whereas the 1998 edition is 1 1/8" thick (better paper), this one is a mere 7/8" overall (basic paper). Maybe the worst part is that what once was a sewn binding is 3) now just a glueback between hardcovers, and looking at this 2000 version even closer, even more worse is 4) how, if you buy it, thinking how you'll feel "played" like me for having paid the exact same price I once paid for a 1998, but instead you paid for awful craftsmanship that's, well, just junk. (And yes, this book is so good you will buy it for friends.)
"Save a buck there, buck here! Who cares?"
Don't answer them. Find a used version of this amazing text and gladly skip class on Loeb's new cost-cutting philosophy.
The book is easy to read. Some passages are confuse, the author offers his oppinion, but this does not affect the core teachings.
Have read both volumes and keep reading them.
