The book gives a useful overall look of Athenian life. It benefits from a brief outline of the history and then useful primary source material.
I recommend the book as a useful teaching text book. However, for me there was not enough detail as the book covers a rather wide subject range.
Alternative reading: 'Athens' Christian Mier for people who are interested in a more flowing account.
