Garrison's edition is well suited to the recreational reader of Latin and the non-scholar. His notes, as always, are very helpful and cover most of the gramatical and textual questions that are likely to arise for the undergraduate or secondary reader. This book, however, would have benefited from a vocabulary and a slightly larger print size for the text. A good book, but not as good as Garrison's Catullus.

I purchased this book for a class, and overall it was fairly helpful. The commentary gave a good amount of historical background, helping to identify some of the proper names included in the poems, and helped with some of the other vocabulary. However, it included some, but little grammatical help, and in poetry, grammar can be very confusing. However, the appendices also included other helpful information, including information about meters, and overall, the book provides a fairly good commentary on the Epodes and Odes.

I have found this commentary to be helpful, both for understanding and for appreciating Horace's Epodes and Odes. I recommend that it be read with Steele Commager's The Odes of Horace and Eduard Fraenkel's Horace.

Garrison's layout of the text is fairly well done so that the text is easily able to be read. The commentary is, generally, useful. There are a few typos or mistakes in it, but the commentary will prove valuable to the intro student. There is sufficient aide for grammatical question and enough cultural explanations to make the book useful. Sometimes Garrison makes references to more modern works, which is less useful, yet still available. If you are a serious reader, you likely know more suitable sources already. Otherwise, for the casual reader or student who is attempting to augment proficiency, this book is useful. Fortunately, Garrison (Ode 1,11) does not fall into common convention to misaddress 'carpe diem' as sieze the day rather than the proper 'pluck the day' in the proper context.
