From the Back Cover
In this book the authors present the texts in their own new translations, and these are accompanied by a philosophical and historical commentary designed for use by all readers, including those with no background in the classical world. With its glossary and set of indexes, this volume can stand alone as an independent tool of study.

Chapters are divided into schools, and subdivided into topics (ethics, logic, etc.). After each subdivision, the authors offer insightful analysis of the doxographical material that aids the reader's understanding of context, and usually works to put the various (sometimes divergent) reports together.
One important distinction between Raven and Kirk is the accessibility of this collection. Long and Sedley have separated the English translations in a separate volume, and placed the original Latin and Greek sources in a second volume. This makes the work less intimidating.
There were a few awkward cuts and organizations, but nothing to make this any less than a top-notch piece of scholarship. It was much better than Hackett's 'Hellenistic Philosophy'.
