Like another reviewer, my order of the brown/orange version of the bag was not adhered to by the supplier. They sent the brown/pinkish one which I neither wanted nor ordered! If they did not have the one I ordered, they should not have sent a substitute. It is unethical and I would not have purchased it had I knew this would happen. I bought as a gift for someone else and it goes without saying that the selected colour is an important factor. Very disappointed indeed. Amazon suppliers don't usually pull cheap stunts like that. Poor show!

The Penguin History of Greece by A.R. Burn

This book is gem. It has a wealth of information crammed into a small paperback. At times it seemed like almost too much information to process. It is a book I go back to and reread parts of it. Well researched and the author does not waste his words. I particularly liked reading about the accounts of Socrates and Plato and some inspiring quotes from others such as Xenophanes. For those more interested in military and political history there is no shortage of that.
