4.0 out of 5 stars Where are the maps?! 31 May 2011
By Persepolis VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great starting point for anyone who wants to learn about Alexander The Great. It's simple, not too long and describes his character and conquests.
However, the book itself makes countless references to maps and there are links to these, yet they do not work. The map images are NOT present. This proves especially frustrating when the author is trying to explain Alexanders progression through certain lands.

Other than the map issue it's still a great read. And for the grand price of £0, you can't really go wrong!

Great starting point if you want to learn about Alexander. Highly recommended!(But slighly annoying as the maps which are in the original cannot be shown on the kindle.)

4.0 out of 5 stars good basic outline 21 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellent starter book on the subject of Alexander's life conquests and untimely death. All the basic facts are here without going into too much detail. However as others have said the map links don't work and can be quite annoying so have a map of the area on hand before you begin reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars A free history of Alexander the great 7 Dec 2013
By Brian
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an old book on the subject but reads well and covers the subject in detail, the only problem that I found with it is that it didn't include the maps which are frequently referred to in the text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 25 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very interested and fascinating. Enough detail to paint a vivid picture of the time, but still short enough as to keep it to light reading. This is the third of Jacob Abbott's book that I have read and really would recommend them to anyone wanting to increase their history knowledge.

Shame the map doesn't work, but google is only a few clicks away!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you 18 Jun 2013

I used to go to a local library to borrow some books, but have recently begun to download free books from Amazon using my Kindle when I have time. I am very glad that a lot of books are available free of charge. Thank you.

A primer for those who know next to nothing about Alexander (are there any?). This was written in different times, in a different world, so do not expect anything about the defining constant in Alexander's life --- his soulmate and lover Hephaestion.
