While I do enjoy looking at the "before/after" overlays that show me the differences between the ancient city and modern ruins, I somehow expected this book to be bigger. I guess I had it in my mind that this would be more like a smaller coffee-table book. (Unfortunately, I have come to distrust the listed product dimensions in an Amazon item's description, because so many times they are inaccurate). Still, the book is very nicely done and I'm quite enjoying it. I would REALLY be enjoying it if I hadn't forked out $30 for such a small book, however!

This illustrated guide was tremendously helpful in seeing how various monuments were originally versus how they are now. Highly recommended.

Updated 1/3/2015. I love this book. It is a great souvenier from my trip to Athens and was extremely useful in imagining what these ruins looked like in their full glory. Without these overlay images, it's very hard to see what was where, and I still love looking at the overlays for just that reason. My back cover says twenty one ninety five and I'm sure I got a deal in 2007. Now I see it's going for double. I would buy again, but shop around, used copy somewhere. My nephew wants to go to Greece, but when I looked at it again, I don't think I can part with my copy. It's a great little book. It is small in size, only 5x7 inches.

During my Navy career ships in which I served visited Athens a number of times. My being an ancient history buff and an armchair archaeologist quickly led to Athens' becoming my favorite city.
This unique little book was like a return visit to Athens for me with the added benefit of the clever overlays showing what Athens was in its days of glory. This book is a priceless addition to my library.
