I have this book in bound form and in Kindle since my research area is narrow and it is helpful to be able to search or to look up something quickly.
Read the footnotes; they're very effective as an aid to understanding the material.
If you love the Stoics, you'll find that nearly every page of this work is worth the price of the book.
The same might be said of another recent Hackett publication, a 2006 translation of On Academic Scepticism, a book that might be considered a kind of counterpart to the Stoics Reader: call it Cicero's Hellenistic Reader. By doing friendly battle during the Roman Republican period, the Stoics and Sceptics covered endlessly interesting subject matter in ways that remain accessible to any curious modern reader.
Other Hackett titles that come to mind: a handy Epicurus Reader; the Nichomachan Ethics; a remarkable complete Plato. I wonder how the publisher manages to offer these new translations at such low prices? I look forward to filling my library with their future efforts.
