1. Quality of translation: I prefer readibility over beauty.
2. In-depth introduction to the dialogue (see for example: Allan Bloom's essay in his translation of the Republic).
3. Great footnote, meaning, it must go beyond the meaning of the word.
4. Great bibliography.
This book excels in #1 and #4, but lacking on the interpretive essay and footnote. The essay opened with a promising argument that we do not today pay enough attention to rational thinking, but unfortunately it does not go far enough in linking this to the dialogues. The essays are disappointingly brief. It reads likes those text you would find in a newspaper's book-review. I do, however, appreciate the inclusion of Aristophanes' Clouds and the author has done a decent job in putting that in to the context of the trial.
On the footnote side: the footnote only explains the meaning of the original Greek words. I expect some historical, or cultural backgrounds notes.
