This is NOT an Intro.,

This review is from: Essential Epicurus: Letters, Principal Doctrines, Vatican Sayings and Fragments (Great Books in Philosophy) (Paperback)
Just a word of warning: While I do like Epicurus, this is *not* the book to get if you want to read up on his philosophy. These are primary sources from the hand of Epicurus himself, but they are not particularly helpful in explaining the philosophy of Epicureanism.
This book is mostly useful for scholars of antiquity - NOT for the educated reader. - The title of the book seems to indicate something different which is why this review lands on two stars.
